Great beer-- on tap at Bangers and Lace. Perfect for a snowy winter evening.

Very sweet for a scotch ale (in a good way). Notes of plums and raisins similar to many quads. Very interesting brew.

Appearance: Murky dark amber body surmounted by a moderate off-white head, and thick glass-coating lace. Before a strong light, there is moderate carbonation and some sediment.

Aroma: Sweet caramel and earth notes dominate, alcohol notes are faint, surprising, considering the high ABV. There is also a mild apple rind note as well, which seems quite complimentary.

Taste: Opens with a wave of alcohol and caramel, both sweet. The alcohol is quite warming. As the taste progresses, there is a mild bitter, earthy note, which balances well against the caramel and sweet alcohol. A wave of dark fruit presents later in the taste, suggesting raisins and especially prunes. Finishes with a lingering note of vanilla and wood. There is a very faint herbal hop bitterness at the close of the taste.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very full, pleasing.

Drinkability/notes: Very pleasing, seems ideal for a cool, dark autumn day when the wind rises and cool rains fall. Well worth a try.

Presentation: Packaged in a 750 ml brown glass Belgian-style bomber with a cork and cage, served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager Sensory glass.
