Poured from bottle into pint glass.
Leaves a sticky lace in glass, retains bubbles throughout.
Smells of toffee and caramel, malty, bitter aftertaste,mmmm.
Gives the tongue a tingle, excites the brain, leaves a sweet aftertaste towards back and sides of mouth.
Lots of depth, enjoy six pack of this Scottish ale from 3 floyds while watching Braveheart.

My local bar has this on tap year round, so I always have it. Decided to do a full review on this brew that comes from the powerhouse brewery known as 3 Floyds.

A- A dark copper color. About a half a finger of foam, with good head retention and decent lacing.

S- Very toasty malts and a sort of coffee smell. Not overbearing and is light.

T- Initial burn malt taste, with a bitter coffee aftertaste. Light but extremely enjoyable.

M- Moderate carbonation and moderate body. Takes a while to finish.

O- I know of lots of people that really don't like this beer or think it's a subpar offering from FFF but i disagree. I really enjoy the malt and bitterness that comes from it.

Thanks saisonrichbiere for the hookup

The beer pours a rich looking dark brown with an overzealous off-white head that thinly blankets. The nose is slightly metallic, roasty, caramel, a touch of booze, and uncharacteristically unbitter. The taste presents a decent amount of caramel, very little bitterness (surprisingly), and a lingering bready maltiness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, bready, and sweet. This beer is tasty, but I'd prefer a FFF hop monster any day
