A - Red-brown body, dark but largely transparent, with a light tan head. Lots of tiny bubble lacing.

S - Caramel, sugar, a bit of fruit in the form of apple, pear, and a bit of tea.

T - Follows the nose, malty, toasted marshmallow, smoky middle, hinting a bit of savory smoked ham, lovely hit of bitterness in the close.

M - For as rich this tastes, the feel is pretty clean. Decent carbonation. A bit of dryness.

O - Glad this was brought back. Tasty, and full. Delicious.

12oz bttl into BL glass
L- dark ruby red with thin tan head pretty good retention
S- sweet malty aroma
T- a whole lot of sweet malt with smoky undertones, a pleasant follow of mellowness, finished by the smoky taste of the peat malt
F- medium bodied, smooth drinking
O- first sip blew me away it was complex and smoky but pretty soon the sweet malt overtook the beer so while i definitely like it could use some balance

Pours translucent dark rust color with a half-inch khaki head that remains as a thick ring and cap on top and leaves thick curtains of lace. Smooth caramel malt flavor up front with a distinct hop bite on the finish.

Pours a beautiful deep Amber color with 1 finger of frothy head. I detected smoky aromas with a hint of molasses. Very ligh creamy mouthfeel with light carbonation. The finish was sweet and malty. Overall very enjoyable.

Pours a beautiful red amber with a frothy off-white head. Smells like malty cola, sweet molasses, caramel, mild grass and smoky earthy fruit notes. Tastes like sweet malt, mild earthy fruit notes, caramel, molasses, oaky wood, mild smoke, with faint grass in the aftertaste. Feels light bodied, creamy with high carbonation. Overall a nice malty scotch ale.

It has a beautiful clear amber color. The smell is malty and the taste is smoky and malty. It also has a hint of spice. The carbonation is little and the body relatively dry I think.
