Translucent brown with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, some dark fruit, with light smoke, and alcohol as well. Taste was sticky sweet caramel, with light roast, a touch of peat, and a semi-sweet finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish-brown in color with an off-white head that fades to nothing rather quickly. Caramel malt aroma with just a touch of scotch apparent. Just right for my tastes.
