This poured poured dark brown with ruby highlights when held to light and a very thin off-white head. The aroma was of malty sweetness, but not very dominant. The taste was of caramel and peat. It was sticky sweet, but so very smooth and easy-drinking. Did not seem like it was 8%abv to me, as I could easily drink a few of these. I really enjoyed this one.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Burk @ Bishops Arms, GA Malmö. Mörkbrunröd med smutsat vitt skum. Dofter av karamell, bourbon, brunt socker och trä. Smakinslag av karamell, bröd, lätt rökighet, nötter och frukt. Mjuk munkänsla, medelstor kropp. Den förhållandevis höga alkoholhalten anas mer än framträder med stor kraft.

***16 oz Nitro Can*** Poured aggressively into a point glass. Huge light tan head full of foamy bubbles. Head sticks with the beer as you consume. Nose is full of toasty malts of toffee, chocolate, and caramel. Flavor profile matches the nose. Mouthfeel is medium body. Words cannot describe how creamy this beer is, it is definitely a high note! Well done Dale.

Poured from a tall boy can into a Oskar Blues pint glass deep dark brown with a beige head.
Aroma is sweet saintly caramel malts. Subtle smoke tho others tasting with me disagree.
Flavor is flat out Scotch ale like a job. Roasty ,malted delicious. So well done sweet.
One of the smoothest scotch ales EVER. And in a can. What not to like. Do feel the "nitro" version is more creamy than the non nitro version. Maybe its a mind meld of sorts but like this so much.
