By far the best scotch ale on the market in my opinion... Medium body, smooth and medium/low carbonation. The alcohol is really well masked in this beer. A great Scotch Ale, and I love the label design to boot. Great dark fruit taste though with that toasted bread as well. Medium lite body but some what syrupy. Light carbonation. Full bodied, velvety, lip smacking sticky, and coats the mouth with scotch toffee with a lingering bitterness buried underneath. Another great job by Dark Horse... Thumbs up!!!
