3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle from Atom, thanks Adam! Pours a deep brown colored body with a slight ruby hue. Finger-width, creamy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is deep, sweet malts with a touch of alcohol. Nice raisin dark fruits, heavy caramel, some brown sugar, toasted nuts, and a light earth. Malt forward, but not overly sweet. Flavor is similar. Very rich malts, but not cloying or overly sweet. Deep caramels, toffees, raisin dark fruits, brown sugar, toasted nuts, and a hint of roast towards the end. Finishes rich and malty with a light earthy bitterness and a light alcohol note. Lengthy aftertaste following a fuller, somewhat sticky body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid, bigger scotch ale that drinks way too easy for the ABV%. Deep, rich, and malty, but balanced and never too cloying or sweet. I really enjoyed this one.
