Pours a nice dark brown with tan head. Nuts, dark fruits, some peat, and sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. One of their better beers.

jgb9348 (6258) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Deep dark brown coloured body with a rich three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, prunes, raisins and pit fruits with a lot of earth. Medium-bodied; Assertive alcohol and bourbon flavours up front with a definite earthy and rich malty flavour coupled with loads of caramel, toffee and pit fruit sweetness right behind. Aftertaste shows a lot of complexity with some honey notes, bits of smoke and toastiness and a lot of pit fruits coupled with earth. Overall, a nice very rich beer with a good profile and an even better depth. I sampled this pint on draught here at the Hilton Austin Airport for US$7.00 on 06-May-2014.

Bottle thanks to Rightcross55. Pours very dark ruby red with a small foamy head that fades to a thin ring. Aroma is thick caramel candy and dark fruit mixed with some light chocolate and peat smoke. Taste only slight sweet with a dry finish. Caramel and dark fruit mostly and a very light smokiness in the finish. Medium body with a nice chewy mouthfeel. Solid scotch ale. Nice and smooth.
