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...!

Draft at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a dark orange, light copper color with a small white head. Aroma was sweet, caramel and toffee malts. Flavor was some toffee, caramel, touch of alcohol. Not usually a huge fan of Scotch ale, but I found this one was pretty enjoyable and well balanced, no harsh malt character here.
