Served in an imperial pint at Great Dane, 5/14/2014.

A- Dark copper-brown body, one finger white head, good retention, rings of lacing

S- Caramel, sweet toffee, roasted malts. Simple and subtle.

F- Sweet toffee in the front and back, roast malt in the middle. A slight, subtle earthy bitterness at the end. Very nice profile.

M- Smooth, sufficiently bodied, rich yet very drinkable. No heat, not much bitterness- just a rich, sweet drinking experience.

O- A solid, uncomplicated scotch ale that isn't overdone in any way. Certainly not a bad beer and great for drinking in the pub with some friends over a burger and fries.

Stone of Scone Scotch Ale pours a dark brown color with a small lacing head, similar to a root beer. There is a sweet and boozy aroma, with sharp malt aromas. The taste has a sharp malty flavor with a boozy and scotch aftertaste. Full body, nice flavors and very drinkable. Overall a very nice Scotch Ale.

Poured a clear brown color with a one-finger, light brown head of pillowy foam. It smelled of peat moss and earthy notes. Some sweet malt present, too. Good caramel maltiness with an earthy, grassy hop presence. It had a slightly boozy taste, too. It was crisp and sharp.
