12oz bottle thanks to Vega406 for including it as an extra. Poured into pint glass.

A- Pours a dark slightly cherry red brown with a very thin layer of slightly brownish white head. About average carbonation. Layered lacing.

S- Malts, light caramel, some very light roasted malts, a little bit of graininess. Average aroma strength.

T- Malts, caramel, light cherry flavor, lightly sweet on the finish with a cherry aftertaste.

M- Medium bodied, smooth, well balanced, goes down easy.

O- This was a nice beer, but nothing spectacular. Easy to drink, nice flavor, but nothing that stands out against other beers. Nice offering from FFF as a year round offering available in 6-packs.

This one had been in the fridge a while, so...

Pours a hazy medium brown with amber highlights abs a half inch tan head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving spots of lacing.

Caramel, sweet molasses and a hint of smoke open the aroma, with chocolate and lightly roasted malt emerging. There's a bit of dark fruit character initially.

Flavor showcases nutty malt, with toasted breadcrust at the finish. Decidedly sweet, flavors of toffee, chocolate, and burnt sugar add complexity. There's a bit of dark fruit character underneath, and a whisper of earthy peat. The finish is slightly dry and bitter, countering the sweet malt. Alcohol is present, but does not overwhelm. Peaty character is accentuated as it warms.

Body is fairly syrupy, on the heavy side, with fairly low carbonation. There's a touch of astringency and alcohol warmth at the finish.

Overall, a good showcase of malt, per the style, but a bit on the sweet side. I would gladly drink another!

Poured a crisp mahogany with 1/2 a finger of light khaki colored head.

The aroma is pretty muted in my opinion... getting some caramel malt and a hint of toffee.

The taste follows suite. Caramel malt and a touch of toffee.

Medium to full in body with an abundance of carbonation. This is a plus in my opinion because it brings this bland beer to life somewhat.

Overall, this was a disappointment. I love a good scotch ale but this one was pretty underwhelming. Glad I got it as an extra because I have always wanted to try it. And thats all I have to say about that...
