On tap at NOVA Summer Brewfest in Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville, VA.
Very hazy, very dark rusty brown with a fine dark cream colored head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, toffee, blackberries and dark plums.
Taste of chocolate, toffee, caramel, roasted malt, tobacco and dark fruit.
Medium/full body and low/medium carbonization.
On the fruity side for a Scotch ale, but that seems to add to the beer rather than detract. Very nice.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This draft brew from the brewery poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark red brown colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was old ale and malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt toasted malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.
