Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

A Dark hazy brown with a 1 finger light tan head that dissipates leaving a nice layer of foam and decent lacing.

Aroma is carmel, hops, dark fruit, wood and winter spices. Complex and inviting.

Taste is very well balanced. 50IBU but contrasted against the malt sweetness and alcohol. There is a little alcohol bite but plenty of rich beer flavors with dark fruits, malts, and the hops.

Mouthfeel is medium body. There is enough sparkle to keep the drink interesting. Feels a little slippery, but easy to drink.

Overall an outstanding Scotch ale that leaves a warm glow and a desire for more.
