Smooth scotch ale, less alcohol than many, my bottle (22 oz) was 6.9% ABV, Very smooth, nice maltiness, medium body compared to medium plus of many other scotch ales. Great reddish color.

Pours a nice ruby red with a decent but rapidly evaporating head. The aroma lays low, a sort of unspecified sweetness and slight but not off-putting rancidness. Taste is much better than the smell, not too sweet yet full of raisins and toffee nonetheless. Just the right amount of hop bitterness in the mix. Mouthfeel is smooth and unassuming.

The beer is ruby in color with large malt aromatics, delicious malt flavors and a full bodied finish.

It's built around malted barley with hops playing a balancing role.

On tap at the brewery; taster glass.

A: Opaque amber with a half finger off-white head that lingered.

S: Charred malts with a bit of peat presence.

T: Malts rule heavy here with a smoky backbone. Some caramel and toffee with dark fruits on the finish. Sweet, robust. Nice.

M: Medium with medium carbonation. Chewy.

O: A decent scotch ale from one of my new favorite breweries. Wish I could get it on a regular basis.
