For a Scotch Ale, very good. Sweet sugars/malt aroma. Taste is sugar, somewhat syrupy/caramel, alcohol. Very good beer!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
12oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. The aroma is a pleasant blend of sweet, sugary caramel, a touch of coffee beans, and chocolate covered raisins. There’s a subtle undertone of berries with a slight alcohol, or maybe cough syrup is more appropriate. As it warmed up and settled, I could also pick up a trace vanilla and floral quality to it. It pours a dark brownish-red body with a lightweight, fizzy dark tan head. There’s not much head, and it recedes quickly to a thin ring with a wispy film and it leaves very little lace. The taste is a medium / medium-high sweetness with a slight bitter touch at the finish. The body is a medium / medium full richness with an above average, soft carbonation that has an oily and slick texture. The mouth is mostly a juicy and fruity feel with some grass. The finish is a roasty grain with a resin texture. The mellow resin hangs around a bit for the aftertaste with some figs and candy grape (borderline grape cough syrup). There’s just enough bitter presence at the finish and aftertaste to cleanse the palate, but not damped the fruit sweetness. The linger is brief.
