Well balanced Scotch Ale. Not a ton going on in the nose, and not the thickest of heads, but the
flavors of caramel, grape/black cherry, and peat all play amongst each other with out one dominating
the profile. Nice to sip, but not overly heavy for the ABV. Goes down smoothly. Would drink again...

I let this beer age for 6 months and after the long wait I finally had it. Worth the wait. So much better aged. It's really smooth and just tastes fantastic. Beautiful color and just fantastic finish. Buy a pack and let it age for 6-8 months.
