3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 Aromas of cocoa, roasted coffee, nuts, toffee, toast, earth, and slight citrus fruit. Clear, very dark brown with red highlights, the head is khaki and retains moderately. Light sweetness, complemented by perceptible strength, and some bitter roastiness and smoke; great balance. Medium body, low carbonation, and a dry, toasty finish with some lingering fruity and nutty flavors.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on draft at the brewery. The menu claimed this as an 110/-Scotch Ale. But the name is identical. Beautiful clear amber pour with decent ring of offwhite head. Malty sweetness with just a slight twinge of alcohol heat on the nose. A slight peatyness plays very well with the biscuity maltiness. Enjoyed quite a bit.
