Bryan's Notes
The Look:
- dark brown, with slight reddish hue
- decent off-white smooth and creamy head that holds up for quite a while
- easy to stir up again

The Aroma:
- pleasantly sweet nutty aroma
- light bready aromas too

The Taste:
- more bitter tasting upfront than would've originally thought
- more like a brown ale than scotch?
- missing some richer, peatier flavors that I might have expected
- the bitterness lingers

The Verdict: As it warms, definitely improves with richer malt and alcohol flavors coming through. This was a decent drinking beer that is worth sharing.
Adam's Notes
The Look:
- amber red hue
- clear

The Aroma:
- sweet malty nose

The Taste:
- dry and lotsa carbonation
- not really that sweet
- Scotch ale hmmm..dunno about that

The Verdict: Clean and straight forward. Not something I would turn down, but, not something I would buy again
