3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on tap at Quality in Champaign. Served in a shaker pint.
A: Pours a dark ruby color with a thin tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin film and leaves splotches of lace.
S: Nice peaty smoke with a touch of roasted malts. Nice sweetness as well with just a touch of hops.
T: Nice peat flavors with a little smokey malt. Some roasted malt notes with a little backend sweetness. Minimal hop flavors in the background as well.
M: Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and a medium carbonation level.
O: This was a pretty straightforward scotch ale. Nice peat and smoke with a sweet malt profile.
Serving type: on-tap

"The aroma started off a little dusty if that makes sense. Poured in the mid-40’s, but as it got warmer and warmer, this beer REALLY opened up. Glad I took my time. Nice layered aroma and flavor of dark and light fruits, quite malty, slight smoke, carmel, very earthy/woodsie. Opened up to a nice creamy feel as well. Good reminder of why I like this style, and this brewer.
