Picked up a four-pack at Discount Liquors in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear dark brown amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, light floral hops and a touch of maple. Taste is full-bodied, malty, with flavors of sweet toffee, caramel and a hint of maple. Finish is semi-sweet, quite smooth with a maple and toffee aftertaste, with a touch of honey. A 120-shilling Scotch ale profile without the extra alcohol.

From a bottle. Pours almost clear copper brown with a thin, fizzy white head. Tastes like roasted malt, very nutty, alcohol, wood, creamy. Light body and low carbonation. Smells nutty, sweet, like light alcohol, wood, molasses.

Bottle:   Deep brown sugar, spotty lacing, moderate to minor frothy sandy head.   Sweet bready aroma, some dark pitted fruit, a little peat.   A touch of caramel malt too.   Light to moderate sweetness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Quick finish, not much from the start lingers into the finish.   Seems a slightly lighter example, wished it were a bit more robust.   Thanks Bob!
