3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Town Hall Brewery. Malty, toasty nose with some candy (toffee) and a bit of coffee. Copper-red, mahogany -- very pretty. Mild sweet roastiness in intiial; chocolate come out in mid palate; somewhat medicinal and candy-like final. Medium body, a bit sticky. Made well, but doesn’t have much character.

on tap at TH 20Aug2012, Strong nose and taste of malt and even some peat, smokiness though those flavors are overbearing as i find no sweet touches of dark fruits here.
