3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rusty mahogany into the glass, with a fizzy cola head that leaves trace lacing. The nose is of sweet caramel and woody notes. Flavors are toffee, caramel and light esters with a sweet, woody mouth that finishes with alcohol warmth. The palate is active with carbonation, has a full body and provides an oily mouthfeel. Slightly boozy, but otherwise, a nice example of the Scottish Wee Heavy. Good things happening at this brewery.
