    [Best served in a Thistle]

    The pour was a deep mahogany brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) light tan creamy head that reduced in the first few minutes down to a thin cap and medium collar, which in turn created some excellent sheets of sticky spotty lace.

    The aroma was nice and robust with a roasted biscuit malt and a sweet yeast with notes of caramel, a mild coffee, light chocolate, dried fruit (figs and dates) and a mild alcohol tinge.

    The taste was a very smooth malty sweet with a hint of caramel and a mild coffee presence at first, with the finish being sweetly acidic and having a good dose of dried fruit and a decent alcohol ending. The flavor lasted a good long time after the swallow, leaving behind a mild alcohol fruity taste.

    Mouthfeel was medium in body and had a creamy dry texture with a moderate carbonation.

    Overall a nice bold fruity sweet Scottish Ale with more of an alcohol presence than the ABV suggests...

    I've managed to pass this beer up on several occasions at the bars around town. They usually this beer and another FFF beer that I want to drink more so I'm glad I sit down with a bottle of this stuff.

    It pours a dark brown copper color with about a half inch of tan head. A small amount of lace makes an apperance then quickly slips back into the glass.

    The aroma is caramel malt right up front. Hints of fruit and spice. Maybe a bit of chocolate.

    The flavor is right in line with the nose. A bit more fruit and scotch then the aroma. Actually very marzen like.

    Medium to light body. A decent amount of carbonation. Rather dry.

    Overall not the usual toe curler from three floyds. A rather drinkable session beer nonetheless.
