Pours a clear dark copper with a big lacing off-white head. Thick, sweet, lightly caramelized somewhat acidic aroma with a hint of peat malt. Body is thick, sweet and complex, with a lasting smoked malt finish. Enjoyable throughout, a great Scottish ale.

Hopheads have plenty of brews to choose from, this one is far malt lovers. What a Scottish Ale should taste like and it's actually from Scotland.

fraternie (988) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Murky, cloudy brown body. Strong toffee/caramel aroma. Sweet, flavorful malt. Notes of toffee, strong caramel finish. Well balanced, long flavorful finish. Fairly one-dimensional malt but overall one of the better Scottish Ales I've tried.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2008 Pours brilliantly clear, dark mahogany brown, with a good sized dense tan head of very fine bead. Leaves a nice lace most of the way down the glass. Aroma is malty, with dark fruits (figs, dates) and apples. Flavor is big, juicy malt upfront, with roasty and toasty notes. No diacetyl. Tail is sweet but mildly so. Body is very creamy and smooth. A wonderful Wee Heavy, and a true classic of the style.

DragonStout (1410) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2003
DArk in color with a thick foamy head that dissapers quickly, but still clings to the side of the glass.Medium bodied with lots of malt and not ot bitter.Had a clean finish with a nice warm feeling going down.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2003
Clear ruby/brown. Decent head and lace. Nose of caramel, peat, toffee, burnt sugar and more. Medium bodied, bit syrupy, heavy smoke/peat, which provides slight sourness, dark, toffeish malts, not too sweet, nice slight bitterness and a almost dry, lingering with peat finish. Good brew.

Ruby-copper hue. Beige head. Smokey, cherry, wood nose. Light fruit, grainy, slight oil, faint nuttiness, rich and creamy, peaty, earthy, faint smoke, smooth, soft palate presence, finishing wit a far off smoke and a hint off hops. Drinkable and warming.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2003
(bottled) Dark brown with hints of ruby. Small creamy head. Very malty aroma of caramel, fruits and some smoke and acidity. Flavour is very malty; caramel, dried fruit, toffee, smoke and white chocolate. No hops. Long malty and smooth finish.

BtownBrewer (91) - Belchertown, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Aroma is yeasty, lightly hoppy, caramel and some fleeting sourness. Color is like good home brewed southern sweet tea. Flavor is surprisingly lacking in bitterness considering the hoppy aroma. Earthy. Smoky? I liked this a lot. It had the same complex malty flavors that I've noticed recently in beers like the 3 Floyd's Robert the Bruce, but comes off much lighter and less overpowering, instead of being tamed by a balance of other flavors.

TogBean (47) - Belchertown, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 8, 2003
Beautiful reddish amber color, nice head but no lacing. Fruity, smokey, alcohol aroma. Smokey, haevy, grilled fruit, malty flavor, Wow, this surprisingly different from anything I've ever had. This would be great with a smoked cheddar or gouda, yum.It's got a smooth finish with just a bit of bite at the end. I'd have to save this one for occasional drinkin' but I'll enjoy it when I do.
