3.88/5  rDev +21.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a light amber. Slight head, some lacing, faint retention.

Very weak nose. Disappointing for a scotch ale.

Hits very smooth, but not enough peat in that initial hit to the tongue. Finishes with some slight peat and a little roast.

Very nice thick feel.

Good attempt at a scotch ale, but not the best.

Pours a burnt amber color with absolutely no head, nor lacing.
The smell is a musty burnt smell. Reminds me of burning trash.
The taste is heavy on the malts which is probably par for the style. Taste like burnt toast with a very light finish. Seems like I'm eating burnt toast for breakfast and chasing it with a Bud Light.
Thin in the mouth.
If you liked the flavor of this beer I think it would be very drinkable.
Overall OHB is an excellent brewery who has much better offerings than this. I hope this changes from a spring seasonal to a one-off release.

This beer was a clear mahogony red. There was little head. The smell was faintly spiced. The taste was a somewhat spiced as well. There was a red beer taste with a bit of macro type hints in the aftertaste. The muthfeel was fairly smooth. Not any harsh bitterness to deal with. I could drink these again. A good beer for the style.
