Ive fallen a bit out of favor with most scotch ales but I ordered a pint of this because its 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, youre gonna push it some more!?!

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.
