COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full Malted Jacket is our take on a classic "wee heavy" Scotch Ale. Itís brewed with a base of Golden Promise malt, an heirloom variety from Scotland. Notable additions of light and dark British caramel malts with a smidgen of chocolate malt help add flavors of rich toffee. Full Malted Jacket endures an extended three hour boil to add a unique richness to this lusciously malty brew. Itís hopped just enough with British Goldings hops from East Kent to balance things out.

Wow. If you like a malty brew buy one of these. This is probably the best drink Iíve had from these guys and I will be back.

Pours a murky brown/ruby with a medium tan head. Aroma has moderate roastiness along with hints of fruit, peat, chocolate, and toffee. Flavor has good earthy bitterness to add a bit of balance to roasty notes of chocolate, toffee and mild fruit. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with an earthy bitter/roasty finish. IMHO they nailed the style.

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Wax sealed bottle from Bine and Vine: Poured a deep and dark amber hue that had transparency of mahogany while a soft creamy thin head developed on top which actually reminded me of Guinness Draught. Aroma is thick and heavy with toffee caramel like malts but in general is a subtle and tame olfaction. The taste is sweet with sugary sweet malts that are chewy in flavor of toffee and caramel that stays true to the Scottish-style ale. One clever name and cool design on the label which is another reminder that Beachwood stands out from the rest of the breweries coming out of Southern Cali.

Dark copper pour with a honey colored head. Sweet caramel, toffee, cocoa, molasses, and maybe even a touch of maple in this one. Chewy and sticky. Dessert in a bottle. Decadent.

Rating is from a growler (fermenter sample a week before was equally tasty, but is not used for this rating. Pours with a nearly completely clear deep ruby to brown body with a small, but lasting tan head. Aromas are huge with rich malt, melanoidins, caramel, light notes of dark fruit, esters, alcohol and light minerals, earthy and just a hint of a sweet smoke. Flavors are big and rich, huge caramelization. Somewhat assertively bitter for the style (although overall it isnít very bitter; it balances well here). Alcohol, yes, there is some, sort of a brandy character, especially as it warms. Dark fruits, raisins, dates, melanoidins, caramel. Smooth but you do get some of the alcohol hit. Warming on your digestive tract after a few minutes, mild carbonation, full bodied. Smooth, creamy, very tasty. This might be my new standard for big (but unadulterated Wee Heavies)
