This beer is a slightly heavier version of a traditional Scotch ale, and it's got some punch. Very malty, but not smoky at all, and not bitter either. Good take on the usual Scotches.

Appearance: Very dark red-brown. A small off-white head quickly fades to a small ring of lace.

Smell: Caramelized malt. Pretty faint.

Taste: Sweet up front with caramel and malt, followed by slight bitterness. After this some alcohol warmth appears along with a woody aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Strong carbonation hits the tongue up front, followed by a smooth, thick body.

Overall: Solid and hearty. If you like caramel, try it!
