Pours dark amber with a little off-white head. Aroma is effervescent and fruity with hints of wild cherry. For a scotch, the body is light but not lacking in flavor. The cherry notes are apparent with an obvious bready malt backbone. The finish is sweet, sour and slightly nutty.

Bottle from unknown place. Pours dark, dark brown with a thin khaki head. Leaves a little lacing. Not a lot on the nose. Solid caramel malt on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid but doesn’t get me particularly excited.

On tap at Big Texas Beer Fest. Brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma and flavor have a lot of caramel and toffee notes. There is also a hint of peat malt in the flavor, but not any of the smoked malt notes you get in some Scotch ales. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

bottle. clear ruby with a small head. lightly fruity yeast aroma with caramel. flavor is full of melanoidins with a strong burnt caramel taste. a hint of cola and i even get just a bit of floral english hops. the hop note keeps it from being too sweet and adds some intrigue. just about perfect!

Red color with a two finger tan head. Aroma is malt, caramel and a slight hoppiness. Caramel and sweetness is predominant in taste with a small bitterness. A good one but not my type of beers.
