Draft at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a dark orange, light copper color with a small white head. Aroma was sweet, caramel and toffee malts. Flavor was some toffee, caramel, touch of alcohol. Not usually a huge fan of Scotch ale, but I found this one was pretty enjoyable and well balanced, no harsh malt character here.

Good beer, not great. Malt backbone, nice cover art, on the bottle, finishes sweet but not cloyingly fans or anything.
