look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Dark ruby red with a tan small head.

S: Peat moss, raisins, and malt.

T: Strong scotch character, raisins, plums, dates, cinnamon, peat, and a nice hop kick in the back.

M: Medium heavy and creamy. The mouth feel is good on this one especially for the style!

O: An awesome beer! Reminds me of Old Scotch a lot akin to the flavor profile with some slight deviations. Awesome brew by Founders.
