On-tap at the brewpub. Tasted 3 December 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours very deep brown, almost black in the glass. One finger of medium-dark brown-tan head. Good retention, and excellent lacing. Good stuff.

Smell is faint, earthy malts. Just really faint. What comes through isn't bad though.

Taste is a highlight. Peaty, moderately smoky, though that might be the name of the establishment speaking to my subconscious. A really nice balance of sweet, smoky/earthy, and mild bitter. Waves of flavors, pretty darn tasty.

Medium-bodied, carbonation is spot-on.

Quite a tasty scotch ale. Not the best I've had, but definitely in the top tier. My first time in this brewpub, and I'll be back.
