Pours a lovely mahogany. Nose is malt, some vinous notes, brown sugar. Flavor is up front sweet and mild with a very complex and completely fantastic palate. Chocolate, tons of caramel, bread, dark fruit, and brown sugar. Just shy of being to sweet, this beer is perfect for a malthead like me. A really fantastic stab at a Scotch Ale. Initially I rated this as a 3.8 but I reopened the growler to days later to give this beer a shot on its own without being overshadowed by big imperial stouts. It was a wise decision. This is a fantastic beer. Thanks to Hopscotch for supplying the growler and leaving the remainder at my place.
