The coolest part of this beer is how you can taste the peat smoke in the malt used. It is interesting, but a much lighter body than I was expecting.

I was pleasantly surprised with this offering. Poured into a chilled mug; rich dark amber brown color. This was pleasingly smooth with up front hints if caramel with more hops at the end. Also, this didn't feel overly heavy. Many scotch ales are a one beer night (for me anyway), I would happily drink a few of these and not feel overpowered. So, good balance. Definitely give this beer a try.

A little sweet for my tastes but that is not a fault. I like the complex flavor but at 7.6% ABV this one can sneak up on you.
