3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Strong character, ABV is very present, too strong hides all the nice malty and flowery notes. Drink one slowly on a cold day.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ooh yeah, now we’re talking. All the complexity and nuance of the other AleSmith brews that have recently made it to Texas but also featuring smoky, roasty notes. Delicious. Will definitely be stashing a couple of these away for a later date.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky brown color with tan head. Aroma has lots of dried dark fruit like raisins and dates. Taste follows with the dried fruits, brown sugar and caramel. Not overly sweet, easy drinking especially for the high ABV. Heavy body with sticky feel and medium carbonation. Really good scotch ale, one of the best I had.
