Dark red, warm, and malty with a hint of raisin. Good drinking scotch style ale.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2016 Pours dark clear amber with light tan head. Smells of sweet malt and something I can?t put my finger on. It?s very smooth. Start. And finish. Very light hops. Very drinkable. Not really a Scottish ale by style. But good

shrubber85 (10885) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle. Earthy toffee malt and straw aroma. Brown with small head. Moderately sweet toffee malt and mildly bitter hay flavor. Decent body. A decent malt-forward beer.

Patrickctenchi (6193) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle: Hazy, reddish amber-brown with a very thin beige head. Caramel, berry aroma. Taste is sweet.....toffee malt, a little tangy fruit/berry.....almost sticky. Pretty good, but not much peat or smokiness.

This is a good beer. Full bodied and full of flavor, it doesnt get in the way of what youre eating and its really smooth on the finish. After about a week in the fridge, though, it had lost significant head and carbonation. I was pretty bummed to see how it didnt keep very long.

DATE TASTED: November 28, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Victory HopDevil nonick... OCCASION: Cavs/Nets nail-biter after the lighting of our Christmas tree... APPEARANCE: dark amber body, reminiscent of a black and tan; thin, off-white head that holds to a balanced disc... almost too dense to detect effervescence... AROMA: malt-forward, with fruity hops suggesting cherries making for a nuanced aroma; traces of peat, but the sweetness of toasted malts rides the nostrils... PALATE: medium-bodied, textured and warming; a sessionable feel at 5.2%... slightly active at the teeth, with a paradoxically soft, lingering aftertaste... resisting the urge to suggest cola, but it has the bubble and late fizz... TASTE: light in this aspect, with some toasted bread malts and a touch of smoky peat.. otherwise, a blunted, malted end...some nutty flavor, like hazelnut, as well... OVERALL: a pleasant, easy-drinking pint that can easily be seen as "brewpub favorite," as the company line states...a great match for a rainy night such as this...

It was served on tap at the Appalachian Brewing Company. The glassware was a basic pint glass. Appearance: It has a dark coppery amber colored body with good clarity and some visible carbonation. It was topped by a small slightly off white head which settles quickly leaving just a light ring of foam at the edge of the glass. Smell: The aroma is fairly light overall. I mostly pick up sweet maltiness and caramel candy like notes in the nose. Taste / Palate: The sweet maltiness jumps right out and dominates the palate. It brings heavy notes of caramel, toffee and syrup in its deep malty character. Hop flavor and bitterness is very light and just noticeable late in the finish. Overall though it still finishes on the sweet malty side. The feel is medium, smooth and softly carbonated.
