Pours very dark brown, with ample tan head. Aroma of malts. Taste is rich and malty, not too sweet. A good solid scotch ale, thumbs up.

Bottle. Strangely, Iíve never rated this til now... and itís even stranger given that the BA version of this is one of my favorite annual treats. Anyhow, deep Amber-brownish pour, medium tan head. Nose is malty, candy sugar, maple, toffee, butterscotch, tobacco, fragrant wood. Mouth is medium bodied, sweetness giving over to bitterness and then to toasted oakiness, caramel, nutty, pumpernickel, raisins. Tasty brew. SlŠinte.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2016 Delicious Scotch ale. Looks great in a glass with a nice head that laces beautifully. Has a nice punch with ABV 8.5 yet easy to drink with a nice bit of sweet smoke flavor.

Bottle. Pours with plenty of short lasting head. Quite boozy with malty caramel toffee. Too much alchohol for my liking
