From can. Dark pour with a hint of red. A little bit of lighter brown head that dissipates quickly. Impressive lacing. Nose is sweet with a hint of smoke. Taste is similar; very clean for a Scotch ale. Smokiness comes through in the finish. Very good.

Poured from a 16 oz nitro can. This is what Guinness should taste like! Pours out a dark ruby red/brown. Makes a beautiful, thick, medium beige head. Nice lacing, too. Smells of caramel, roasted malts, and alcohol. Tastes of malted barley, chocolate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from can into a tulip. Dark opaque obsidian with a quickly disappearing coffee-colored head.
Deep roasted chocolate and mild coffee with scotch and a sweet backbone. Nicely carbonated and much lighter body than expected based on the appearance (though the evaporating head could have given it away).
A well-balanced brew that is tasty, if not mind blowing. If it was around I'd reach for another though it does seem suited for Fall or Winter.

Poured from can to glass. Deep amber reddish hue with creamy tan head that lingered. Aroma is malt, floral, figs, honey. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and heavy but creamy carbonation/nitro mix. Taste is dry sweetness throughout with a clean bitterness in the following and a creamy sweet finish. Overall this is a nice brew.
