3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle drank out of a snifter. Pours a very dark amber, almost brown. No head at all. Aroma is very boozy up front with a hint of roast. Very similar to a BA stout. Flavor is complex. I can’t tell if I’m getting hops or just a weird, sour note. There is a slight sweetness but it is overpowered. My first scotch ale. I wasn’t thrilled, but I would like to try others.
