Appearance - dark mahogany color with slight tan head

Smell - raisins, prunes, plums, toffee

Taste - much like the aroma - raisins, prunes, toffee, plums

Mouthfeel - Medium plus body, medium carbonation, sweetness upfront, slight bitterness/astringency on the finish, booze is masked well for the most part

Overall - this is a great scotch ale that I'm glad is available in my market. It will be a staple in my fridge for when I have a craving for the style.

Price Point - $7.99/4pk 12 oz. bottles
