Draft sample at the Mills River Taphouse; reddish-amber color with light tan head. Aroma notes of heavy malt sweetness, nice fruitiness, caramel, toast and lightly earthy. Taste adds toffee, nuttiness, cocoa and tad smoke. Medium-heavy body, low c arbonation, creamy, rich with sweet bready, fruity finish. Nice scotch ale.

I’ve fallen a bit out of favor with most scotch ales but I ordered a pint of this because it’s SN .. . Dark purple .. Mild foam, spits if decent lacing .. . All the typical prune and dark malty flavors .. The mouth is perfect, easy going finish .. . . If I cry out, you’re gonna push it some more!?! drowland (8629) - Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2015
4/29/15. On draft at World of Beer Destin. Deep brown pour with a small tan head, mild lacing. Surprisingly mild aroma, malty, caramel, definitely something toasty... bread, toast, toffee. Lightly sweet flavor, definitely not too much, hints at nuttiness, toffee, sweet caramel, green hop bitterness, lingers doughy. Not bad. alexsdad06 (10277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2015
