3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark ruby that is slightly hazy with off white head. Sweet aroma with caramel or earthy/spicey notes. Taste is not like typical scotch ale. Not as malty sweet or heavy. I do taste a little sweet potatoe but would never recognize it without knowing beforehand. Some caramel and toffee flavors with some herbal/spices noticed. Interesting beer. Definitely not like a scotch all but good beer none the less.
