Pours dark brown with ruby color. Large thick, beige frothy head with very good lacing. Aroma is smoky, roasted toffee and hops. WOW!! Very smooth and tasty with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is not as sweet as aroma suggests (which I like). Some alcohol flavor on the finish but otherwise, surprisingly delicious overall. Definitely an interesting ale.

Medium size rocky tan/white head. Clear, beautiful amber/red brew.Malty, fruity, baked bread nose. Med/full body, creamy mouthfeel. Not overly sweet. Grainy malt flavor, clean, faint roastiness with some smoke also. Finish is medium sweet. Well balanced brew.

The aroma was a nice malt with a slight diacetyl. Nice amber brown color with great head retention. The flavor was malty, slightly smokey with a nice mild buttery flavor. Nice med body, a very good wee heavy that I will be drinking again. The nice thing with this version is that I can enjoy a few more since the alcohol is not too high for a wee heavy.

Nothing to notible in the aroma. The flavor is a nice blend of caramel, coffee, and a mild leather. This is much more drinkable then most wee heavys that I have had.

Wow was this good. Copper colour nice frothy head that discipates kind of quickly but leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. Good amounts of caramel but still kind of sweet and (rusty?). Very pleasent to drink with a somewhat bitter finish. Easily drinkable.

Deep red/brown colour with a thick but diminishing off-white creamy head. Caramel, toffee, and slight alcohol aroma. Caramel and buttery flavour with a dry, tangy, astringent bitter finish. Medium bodied dry mouthfeel.

earthy. I like the look of it, I like the feel of it. the malt/hops balance is definitely more on the malt side, though not unbalanced with notes of licorice and earth. good stuff.
