12 oz bottle. bottled 12/19/12.

A: an opaque ruby body. head is reddish white and very bubbly. retention is great. lacing is thick.

S: slightly smoky. burnt caramel. molasses. lots of sugar.

T: malty and chewy for sure. drinks more like a caramel ice cream sunday. a thick coat of caramel resides on the palate. sugar long after the drink is gone.

M: full bodied flavor without being quite full-bodied. medium carb.

D: solid scotch ale. malty and rich. not a blow away (try backwoods for that), but certainly tasty and moderately priced.
