Had it on tap at Town Hall Brewery in Minneapolis! This definitely fits its description, rich in its malt complexity. Definitely a heavy tasting beer, dark amber hue, malt rye aroma, and that complex malt taste with a rye chaser.

This was one of my favorites sampled at Town Hall brewery while visiting Minneapolis. Very malt heavy, with some barley and toffee notes. Finish is clean but wet with booze, a little scotch and a nice blend. Super!

On cask at the brewpub; they were out of the fifth seasonal so this is what I got in that taster. Pours a deep, clear-amber color with almost no head. Notes of caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, toffee, and a very faint peaty note. The nose pops more than the flavor. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Nice Scotch ale and the cask treatment works well for it for the most part.
