Shared 22 oz. bottle. Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of bread, malt, scotch and wood. Taste follows nose. Decent but not one of the better scotch ales out there.

Aroma: lots of malt with some apple juice notes; Appearance: very dark amber with very thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: malt is too overwhelming, leaving an unbalanced beer, even for a Scotch Ale; disappointing; Palate: heavy body with long, malty finish; Overall: definitely not my favorite Scotch Ale. Would not buy again.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2015 Had on tap at the Grog. $6.00 for the full pint. Yeah. Pours a mahogany-tinted auburn brown with which a thin off-white ringed head half a fingernail in length stood.
Aromas of caramelized/burnt sugar, Edinburgh yeast, juniper berries, spicy ketchup (not even remotely kidding!), white chocolate, kola nuts, pipe tobacco,Ceylon black tea, and ground cinnamon (brief but it’s surely there).
Tastes the same with the addition of golden raisins, soy milk, and stale black licorice candies.
Graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, and day-old bread experienced at swallow.
Much better than I though it’d be.
Chewy n’ fun.
