2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours a cloudy orange haze w/ almost no lasting head. caramel aroma. taste is much more bitter than expected. there is a mineral water type bitterness and some bitterness coming from the hops which seems a little too much for a proper scotch ale. a little acidity and very bittersweet (sacharrine) on the tongue. a more pleasant sweetness and more complexity with the peated malt and caramels malts would improve this beer significantly.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a somewhat cloudy deep amber-brown-caramel color with a slightly lighter hue and a good-sized, creamy off-white head that had fairly good retention, and very nice cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a blend of caramel and toffee malts along with some earthy and grainy hops and a touch of spicy and floral notes with some smokey character. Its taste was largely an earthy-grainy bitter blend with some underlying malt, caramel, and toffee sweetness. The beer was fairly creamy with some modest carbonation and a bit of a wetter, watery mouthfeel of average density.
