UPDATED: APR 27, 2004 Pours a clear reddish-brown color with nice tan head. Carmel syrupy malts, cherries, and some smoke present on the nose and flavor. Thick and very buttery palate. Very nice.

I thought it was oxidized at first but then realized the aroma was just tangy and airy when it was first poured. Maple syrup and fresh whole wheat bready aromas came next. Flavors of the same, along with nuts, slight orange zest and honey. Blotchy, patchy head. Noted some whisky in palate as beer warmed. I would like to try this again. Thanks to matta for helping me with my quest to try as many Scottish ales as possible!

Bottle. Poured an attractive clear reddish brown color with a small off-white head that diminished quickly. Strong malty, smoky aroma with some hints of sour fruit. Flavor is sweet, rich and complex with a touch of hops and a sweet-tart finish. Smooth, full body and creamy carbonation. Though I tend to favor more hoppy beers, I like this one a lot!

I dunno what went wrong, but this beer tasted like a bandage. Heavy metalic flavor and a bad mouth feel. I was sorely dissapointed by this beer as it was awful

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2004 Amber-brown colour, small head, strong malty caramel character with some smoke in the aroma. Strong sweet malty flavours with just enough hopping. A damn fine scots ale.

The name says it all. Wonderfully full-bodied with a thick white head. Flavors of toffee, and a hint of fruit. Comes off as a little bit sweet for some. Overall, an excellent scotch ale.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 20, 2004
Sweet, roasty malt aromas with a touch of fruit and fresh bread. Rocky off-white head with little lacing. Clear, deep brown, tinted red - not as dark as I imagined when I smelt it before pouring. The body is oily, with a sweet malt that falls quickly to leave a slight smokiness.

rlgk (13391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 19, 2004
Amber with a great brownish head. Carbonated. Aroma from burnt sugar, sweet and rather mild. Has a great sweety flavor, mild but yet clear from toffe. Finishes in a smooth and very pleasant way.

Bottle. Nice dark copper hue with a fine, creamy head--light tan in color. The head was made up of fine bubbles and left rings of lace all down the side of the glass. The nose is mostly malt with a hint of molasses and vague implications of basal malts to provide depth and support the necessary maltiness. Slight vegetal aromas of East Kent Goldings and maybe Eroica hops. The first tase is really quite nice--maltiness with hop background and a warming character from the alcoholic gravity of the Wee Heavy. Flavors of malt, caramel, molasses and spices like mild pumkin pie spice. I would recommend this one to anybody who values maltiness with nice hop support. It's a beer thats probably 60% malty/40% hop great character.
