The appearance was a ruddy burnt dark orange to brown color. Two fingers of white foamy head starts atop and dissipates at a nice pace. Lingering sliding lace. The aroma starts with some roasty to sweet toffee and caramel malts. Balanced nuttiness, with some herbal to earthy qualities. Sweet peat, subtle smoke, and then a boozy punch of dried malts hits like scotch. The flavor moves from sweet to smokey to and fro, doesn’t seem to stick together that well. It’s there, but just doesn’t want to blend. Smoke seems like it’s more ash-like now. Aftertaste leans to malts. Quick sweet to herbal finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a really crushable sort of sweet herbal smoothness over my tongue. Extremely low carbonation. Overall, really nice Scotch ale that I'd have again.

Thanks to Maddog for snagging a growler at the brewery for me!

A: ruddy brown, slight haze, nice head when poured but dissipated to thin wisp
S: medium nose, roasted biscuity malt noticeable
T: sweeter roasted malt taste up front, well-balanced (not over the top for style) hop finish but inching slightly to more hops than malt in bitterness for style
M: good beer, easy drinking for ABV, some EtOH noticeable in finish
