The beer pours a very dark reddish brown with a moderate head. The aroma features notes of toffee, roasted nuts, date, and banana bread. The flavor is semi sweet, with notes of walnut bread, orange peel, banana bread, dates, toffee, dried cranberry, almond. The mouthfeel is medium full but with a dry finish, and sudsy carbonation. Overall this is a really great beer - the flavors have good depth and hold, the body is just right. A nice relief in a world of over the top flavors.

12oz bottled 12/6/17 poured into a 3Floyds tulip pint glass at fridge temp, no ABV listed on bottle. The beer pours bright light brown in color with red highlights and dense mocha brown head. Retention and lacing are above average. The aroma is rich toasted malt and maybe a hint of chocolate. The taste is smooth malt, slight roast and very faint chocolate. There is a sharpness to the taste that I can't place, maybe acidulated malt? Anyway, mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, well carbonated and dry in the finish. Overall, good enough, but I'm guessing fairly off charts in terms of style.

Pours a dark, deep burgundy with a finger of khaki head that retains fairly well. Good lacing starting from the very first sip. Aroma is malty, with sweet notes of caramel, and toffee smoothed out over oak. Toasted, biscuit, and earthen malts give it a solid foundation. Mouth feel is toffee, and caramel. It starts off just a tinge sweet, before the malts take over. Malts are caramel, biscuit, and toasted. Mouth feel is smooth, but not velvety. It looses that creamy feel to a touch of fizz. It has a medium thickness. Overall, a solid standard scottish ale. Not overly sweet, nor is it dull.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.

Appearance - Pours clear and dark copper red with a sandstone colored, finger width head. Good retention before revealing a thin, broken layer of suds. Not much for lacing.

Smell - Malty; toasted malt meets toffee sweetness. Faint earthy hops along with a trace of grass.

Taste - Follows the nose. Mostly toasted malt with a touch of grain upfront, then the toffee sweetness kicks in. Faint earthy, almost herbal character from the hops that keep their distance. Lesser caramel undertone. Finishes sweet with a hint of booze.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a dry, boozy finish... at 6.5%?

Overall - A good Scottish ale. Not the smoothest, but it's got decent flavor development.
