Pours a dark translucent brown with 1 finger creamy tan head that quickly dissipates leaving a little lacing. Hints of caramel, toasted hops, bread. Boozy for sure with some woodiness to it. Some spruce and grassy hops underlying the malty front. Chewy, medium to full body with lively moderate carbonation. Sweet in the front with a little bitterness coming in thereafter. Long, bitter finish with some tobacco at the hind end. This is a pretty good scotch ale.
Addendum: After reading the description (which I try to do only after), I do agree with the taste of dark fruits/plums.

Dark malt amber with an imbued hue of dark red producing a creamy head. Aromas hay, caramel, light toffee, candy sugar/brown sugar and some toasty/nutty. Flavors light brown sugar, light toffee/caramel, lightly nutty. Lightly sweet with just a slight roasty aftertaste. Has some subtle complexities to it that make the style. rougeau13 (3244) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2017
Bottle. Aroma of caramel, metal, toast and soap. Tastes sweet and toasty and a little bitter. Medium bodied but thinnish. neroaga (52) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2017
Dark ale with no head and little carbonation. It has a light malty taste with some smokey notes dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2017
Torn on this. Dark fruit and mystery but a faint metallic twang ruins the finish for me.

Not much aroma. Doesn't have the harsh aftertaste of some Scotch Ales. Not my favorite beer type.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 It’s good, but I’m also not really impressed by it. It’s more similar to Barley wines I’ve had then scotch ales honestly. DWestrick (819) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 3, 2017
