Pours a rich brown with deep garnet coming through along the edges of the glass. The head is cappuccino-coloured, voluminous and leaves lacing on the glass. On the nose, aromas of caramel, nuts, brown bread, and a hint of forest floor come up out of the glass. On the palate, biscuity malt notes, caramel and a big nuttiness make it easy to tell this is a Scotch Ale. A slightly herbal, earthy hop character comes out as the beer warms. Carbonation is subdued. The beer finishes quickly but leaves the impression of nut bread on the palate.
