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.

650ml brown bottle. Pours orangey brown with a long lasting but small white head. Good lacing. Nose has caramel, chocolate and some light smoke. Taste has caramel, chocolate and some late smoke, also some late bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. No sign of the 8% alcohol, pretty nice. A good winter seasonal.

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.
