On draft at Cigar City Aug 2014. Black pour with medium brown tinge on the outsides; no head. Scotchy and syrupy flavor/texture. Plain good. tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 15, 2015

Bottle from 2012. Pours clear deep chestnut, small tan head, dissipates to a ring with decent lacing. Aroma is malty, dark sugars and coffee indeed dominate. Flavor is medium sweet, light plus bitter, hugely malty, toffee, toasted caramel, marshmallow, coffee, hint of chewing tobacco. Slice acidity bites at the sweetness a bit. Some dates and figs in there as well. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Some ABV burn on the finish. Pretty good beer. AndyW68 (1542) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2015

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of malts, caramel and some fruit. The taste was of caramel malts, roast, cherries, some toffee, bread and a bit of smoke. Tasty. hman43 (1586) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2015
It is a dark brown with some light that gets through. It has a brown head. The aroma has toffee and coffee with cherries on the second go around. It has flavors of toffee and coffee that are combined. There are bits of cherries in the flavor as well. It is sweet, with a warming alcohol finish. bearohs (14) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2015
This beer rocks. Slightly sweet finish plus a unique kick up front makes you know you are drinking a mans beer. A boozy wonderful taste but not all that boozy if that makes any sense. RRistow12 (864) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Tasted from draft. Pours a dark brown with off white head. Sweet aroma with caramel, biscuits and syrup. Taste is moderate to heavily sweet. Dark fruits of raisins and plums, caramel, toffee, maple syrup, figs, biscuits, earthy flavors. Definitely one of the best scotch ales I've had.
