Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Sweet caramel malt aroma with some peat and a touch of smoke. Pours deep caramel brown with a medium tan head and good lacing. Caramel malt with a hint of brown sugar to start. Finishes extremely smooth with a rich peatiness and a bit of smoke and booze. Excellent scotch ale.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Perimeter Taco Mac. Dark brown color, with a small, tan head. The aroma is vanilla, caramel, peat, and light smoke. The flavor is very sweet, with light earthiness. Medium body, smooth, and a little lively on the tongue. This is a nice, mild, and very approachable scotch ale. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ar: Caramel and deep toasted malt - clean rosy alcohol - sherry-like oxidation.
Ap: Amber with a bright red color - slightly hazy - small light tan head with moderate retention, leaving a thin ring of foam and some big bubbles.
T: Sweet caramel, with a roasted edge - sherry and nougat, somewhat sharp - a warming, but clean and well-aged alcohol - clean yeast profile, with a touch of apple sweetness - rich melanoidin flavor on the finish, which lingers - very low bitterness.
P: Medium-full body with high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: This beer aged pretty well - the caramel, nougat, and malt flavors are very dominant, but come off as a bit sharp - overall, pretty solid.

Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is smoked peat with undercurrents of dark fruit. Flavor is bittersweet malt with a bit of smoke. A little earthy, but it finishes a little overly sweet. Not bad though.
