COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Scottish-style wee heavy ale is deep ruby in color, full in body with a sweet, malty finish. A great beer for late Fall or early Winter. If it ain’t Scottish it’s...!

Bottle... Pours clear and new penny-copper with a small, white head. The aroma presents caramel and traditional tea-flavoring roots. Full-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is sweet and rich, boasting tons of caramel and toffee. Short, crisp, moderately sweet finish. Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94!

Clear, strong tea appearance with a small beige head and decent lacing. Earthy aroma of caramel, smoke and ripe fruit. Flavors are sweet malt, brown bread and dark fruit. Unassuming spicy hop presence. A hint of wood in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, modestly carbonated mouthfeel. Finish is cleaner than many Scotch ales

c_lee_burton (108) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark reddish amber with a small tan head. The nose is malt, caramel, and sweet cherry. Tastes of caramel malt, butterscotch, plum, and chocolate covered cherries. A little boozy but comes through creamy on the palate with nice carbonation. A hint of bitter balances well with the dark fruit and sweeter tones. Excellent and different wee heavy!

MRodgers1982 (101) - USA - SEP 28, 2014
Fair, not much malt in aroma. Would have liked more. Kind of cloudy and muddy. Good flavors but lacking something. Decent finish with a lingering caramel note.

BierMeHoos (147) - Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2014
Caramel flavor. Deep red pour without a head. The aroma is quite sweet and tempting. The taste is clean and smooth for 8%. I’m a huge scotch ale fan and this is quite good!

UncleKorm (867) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown hue w/ a small creamy beige head. Moderate sweet malty aroma. Initial taste is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish of moderate duration. Tastes are malt, earthiness, grass, and vodka. Full bodied, soft carbonation, and a warm boozy finish.

Artichoke (81) - California, USA - DEC 29, 2013
One finger head, nice malt sweetness characteristic of a Scottish ale. It has some lovely bitterness at the finish, but nothing unusual in terms of flavor.
