Bottle. It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of caramel, burnt toast and some smoke. The taste was similar to the aroma with more caramel, burnt toast, smoke and a nice sweet aftertaste. Good stuff. phaleslu (10099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2017
Draft at the Charleston Taproom, served in one of their mason jar glasses. Pours a mostly clear deep amber with a small off-white head that settles into a bubbly ring and island of film while lacing the glass. Notes of caramel, brown sugar, dried fruits, toast, earthy and slightly citrusy hops. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, bitter, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Good Scotch ale that leans sweet. Bif (2235) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUN 4, 2017
