Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a conic pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live. No best-by date visible.

A- Finger and a half cream-colored head. Moderate retention, about a minute long. Leaves sticky lacing on the sides as it recedes. Ruby-mahogany colored body with middling clarity. Relatively attractive.

S- Interested to see how Belgians will do a Scotch beer. Roast malts, caramel, toffee, some very subtle dark fruits. Well formed scotch ale with a Belgian twist. Rich and roasty.

T- Sweet and dark. It actually tastes like a quad with richer roasted malts. Dark fruits, candi sugar, toffee and brown sugar. Kind of a knock out, surprisingly. Brandy and other dark alcohols make a presence.

M- Thin feel with subtle carbonation. Wet and craggy on the tongue.

O- Very interesting interpretation of the style. Very Belgian. I quite enjoyed this brew.
