Pours a clear dark amber with a big off white head that leaves some nice lace. Aroma is caramel, toffee and some smoke. Taste is caramel sweetness upfront with some smoke and peat. The alcohol is hidden very well when drinking the beer between 5 to 10 degrees. As it warms up it becomes more and more present. Very nice scotch ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle pours a dark amber color with a 2 finger off-white head that retains quite well and leaves some substantial lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild but pleasant with toasted grains and smoke. Taste is a little more pronounced with a bold malty sweetness and a herbal hoppy bitterness and a smoky finish that lingers a while. A nicely done scotch ale that is quite tasty and definitely worth sampling.
