2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours a clear amber color with a small beige head that settles into a ring. Notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted malts, earth, old fruits, toffee, and dead leaves. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a sweet, sticky mouthfeel with a bit of a spoiled-like off note. Could be okay but itís a bit off. Sub-par for the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy rusty amber red color. Barely any head. No lacing.
Aroma is earthy. Burnt sugar, dark fruits, dates, figs. Alcohol. Iím loving the aroma. Did I mention dates?
Taste is very datey. This is very malty. Itís sweet, itís nutty. Dates, figs, raisins, burnt sugar. Follows the nose. Not a lot to say, just follow your nose.
Mouthfeel is full. Itís heavy. Itís sweet. Itís smooth. Itís slightly bitter at the finish. While you canít really taste the alcohol, you can feel it.
Overall, this is good. Itís not my favorite scotch ale, but itís good. Itís still one I could recommend.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap deep reddish brown with a brief wispy tan head. Rather drab deep caramel peaty roast flavors. Very low carbination and a damp earthy character. Nothing stands out and rather boring.
