It’s winter now and that means dry air in the house. Dry air means sore throats and sore throats mean going to sleep with a lozenge in my mouth. For various biological and parental reasons, I lack the ability to unconsciously consume a lozenge while I sleep. Flash forward two hours later and I startle awake with cotton mouth and a dry stone lozenge against my sticky cheek. And that is what I think of with this beer. It’s a bit of sweet toffee with mild flavors and more balance towards the hops than I’d have thought.

Rating #1908 - 2015.09.24 #CraftTakesSeattle Beer 7 - Flight at taproom Light brown amber pour with a bubbly tan foam with little retention. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, vanilla, oak, honey, mild peat smoke. Taste is quite sweet at first, prolonged oaky vanilla, light tobacco, toffee sweetness and the presence of oak in the body. I enjoyed this beer more as it started to warm. Very nice medium-full body, mild alcohol note on the palate which is typical for the style, and lots of rich sweetness.

Tons of malt which one would expect. Not as much peat or smokiness as others have stated which is a positive for me. Very clean and crisp mouthfeel which is rare for a Scotch Ale. Don’t love the category but tried it as the brewery is right down the street, and glad I did. Arguably best Scotch Ale I’ve had.

Clear dark amber color with a tan head. Wonderfully complex aroma with cinnamon clove, cardamom, and a touch of orange zest. Flavor is mild, with some residual sweetness. Very good indeed, yes, quite.
