A- Chocolate brown, amber when held to light. Thin white head disappears pretty much to nothing. No lacing.
S- smell is sweet malt, some chocolate, a bit smoky.
T- Deep malt. Just ever so slight hop presence. Caramel, slight chocolate, a bit smoky in the finish.
M- Clean mouthfeel, low carbonation.
D- One of the better beers I've had from Bosco's. Needs work on the carbonation, but other than that it's quite a solid brew.

Pours a clear, dark amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hint of citrus, hint of hops, hint of smoke, and slight oatmeal. Fits the style of a Scottish Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight hop, hint of dark citrus, hint of roasted malt, and slight oatmeal. Overall, good appearance, body, and blend.

Darn fine brew that came to the table in the shaker with a deep opaque mahogany brown, small tan head that sticks around while leaving sticky lace. Plenty of deep malt and caramel in the aroma, and even deeper in the taste. This is one full bodied , thick and rich ale. Well balanced as the hops remove any lingering sweetness.

Close to the best brew I sampled here, unfortunately, I only had time for a couple pints - but I could have made a session out of this brew.
