Poured into a pint glass. About an inch of head. Poured a toffee color. Smell the roasted malt. Really like this beer.

Looks like the style. Dark, not opaque, with a reddish tint. As far as taste; a bit of a tang upfront in the form of light carbonation on the tongue. Smooths quickly to a very nice malty warm finish. Not sticky or sweet. The thing that jumps out to me with this beer is that nothing jumps out to me. That’s not a bad thing at all. An extremely smooth easy drinking scotch ale.
IMHO a higher ABV would give this beer a nice warming finish and justify the high retail price.

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.
