    341ml bottle (last bottle at the restaurant) served in its own custom tulip glass around 6 degrees:

    Pours a clear dark cherry wood with fiery ruby highlights topped by a finger of tanned foam. Lacing is rough and retention is low since the head shrinks to form a thick ring around the rim of the glass.

    The nose has a strong coffee attack decomposable into roasted malts, caramel (wee burnt), a touch of vanilla and a sting from the hops.

    The taste is very interesting with a sweet malty attack quickly expanding to huge hops delivering a great bitterness. This lets loose nice notes of espresso and leading the way to medium hoppy/vapory finish.

    Mouthfeel is clear, a bit oily but the ale is undoubtly robust and full-bodied.

    Overall this is a good scotch ale with a good bitter backbone. It could be mistaken for a mild Imperial Russian Stout but its a great winter ale.
