Earthy spirits and smoky malt…Wooden dryness…Not heavy enough for a wee heavy…

Good, but not groin-grabbingly good. Very malty. Soft. Slightly sour. Slight roasted flavors. Strong carmelized flavor. Aroma of malt and slight alcohol. Not as much body as I expected or would prefer. Still quite tasty though.

Dark ruby in color, sweet smokey aroma. Chocolate-raisin smokey flavor.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2002
A rudy/garnet brown color with a smallish yet thick beaded head. Amoma of malt dominate. Slight aromas of dark fruit and oak. Malt sweetness domimates in the flavor as well. Touch of cherry and peat also in the flavor. Finishes with a slight black malt/hops bitterness. One of my favorite scottish ales.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2002
Pours a dark reddish brown with just a touch of head and an enticing aroma of red wine and chocolatey malts. Flavor is somewhat sweet, with a strong chocolate flavor, vinous notes, and some hints of black cherries or prunes. Finishes with a light bitterness.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUN 13, 2002
Great pour, reddish body and a foam that looks like the beer’s still fermenting. Deep malt, dark frutiness in the nose with a touch of wood and spice. Smooth palate, essentially malty but just souring out a little towards the end. Heavy malt and sweetness is reminiscent of freshly baked fruitcake.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUN 6, 2002
A little fizzy, good dark malt flavor, slight hop spicyness, a hint of smoke ? light alcohol warming in the belly.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2002
A bit like Traquair, but it’s a bit too fizzy for me. Nice, but not the King o’ the Scots.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2002
Very alcoholic aroma. The beer seems to have more barleywine qualities than other wee heavies i have tried.

Inveigler (371) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2002
Sampled this beer last night. Murky brown appearance. The malt character dominates this beer. The alcohol had a slight warming affect ... this would make a great autumn beer.
