The iron thistle is a wonderful brew. Nice sweet malty aroma. Nice ruby color with a thin head. Plenty of lacing left on the glass. Plenty of sweet malt flavor. The flavor lingers on the tongue a bit which is nice.

Bottle: Very dark amber brown with ruby tone and about a half inch of ashen, tan head the dissipated fairly soon. Roasty nose with coffee and caramel, toffee... Earthy bitterness with highlights of caramel sweetness and some nuttiness. Some toasty bitterness lingers in the finish before giving way to caramel and some dark berry. The carbonation is adequate, mouthfeel just shy of syrup. Alcohol well hidden.
