Thanks to northernbrews for sharing this. Pours a nice dark brown with thick tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, dark dried fruit, bread, and spices. Flavor is quite nice with a bit of sweetness and chocolate to top it off. Mouthfeel is slick, but finishes dry. Very nice and looking forward to the bottle I have in the cellar.

Deep mahogany pour that has rich garnet highlights under dense, mocha head.
Aroma of dark caramel and molasses.
The flavor has some caramel sweetness but isn’t overly so. Some roast malt and a hint of licorice.
Big bodied tasty sipper.

22oz bottle in Fl. Tasty. Positive Aroma. Can’t really place specific flavors but generally great scotch ale.

Sweet aroma of toffee, roasty toasty malt and some fruit underneath. Taste is sweet with plenty bready malt, light nuts and finishes sweet and sticky. Good!

On draft at Cigar City Aug 2014. Black pour with medium brown tinge on the outsides; no head. Scotchy and syrupy flavor/texture. Plain good.

Bottle from 2012. Pours clear deep chestnut, small tan head, dissipates to a ring with decent lacing. Aroma is malty, dark sugars and coffee indeed dominate. Flavor is medium sweet, light plus bitter, hugely malty, toffee, toasted caramel, marshmallow, coffee, hint of chewing tobacco. Slice acidity bites at the sweetness a bit. Some dates and figs in there as well. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Some ABV burn on the finish. Pretty good beer.
