Really nice balance between sweetness and mouthfeel. Had a really curvy sort of heavyness, deffinatly present but not truly heavy. Sweetness was kinda the same way deffinatly present but not sugary or overly carmely. Usually not a huge scotch ale fan but like all styles of beer the really good ones make you forget all the ones you didn’t care for.

Pretty good beer and close adherence to style. Served at a good temperature with a nice, foamy, light tan head that soon subsided to a ring. Color is a clear orange-brown-honey amber. Aroma is heavy on the malt, some fruit, caramel, vanilla, hint of peat. Flavor’s very similar to nose with just enough carbonic tang to balance. Body is full, round, slightly dense and carbonation is perhaps a touch low. Finish is like flavor, long and a little boozy.

I rate beers I think significantly better than average, simple as that. I am not into showing off through word games. :)

Draft at the brewpub. Dark, muddy brown. Delivers a rich malt character in an unassuming manner. Nothing quite stands out, other than very decisive richness and body. Otherwise it hides its 7.2 very well, a great malt bomb. (#5114, 7/2/2013)

Bottle. Pours mostly clear amber with nice white head. Typical scotch ale. Caramel and nutty. Pretty good.
