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...!

This is a very nice, smooth, flavorful wee heavy. Easy on the palate. I will drink this one again. I hope they keep it as a regular.

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!

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 (119) - 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 (846) - 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.

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.

This one poured a lighter brown with an off white head. Aroma was of caramel, toast and grass. Falvor was similar, semi sweet and watery, malty with small hop balance.

Mmm, slightly thick and loaded with caramel flavor. Deep red pour without a head and virtually no lacing. The aroma is quite sweet and tempting. The taste is clean and so smooth at 8%. I’m a huge scotch ale fan and this doesn’t disappoint!

Pours clear dark ruby with a small off-white head, no lacing. Aroma is smoky, caramel, woody and sweet. Flavors caramel, sweet malts, crackers and hot alcohols
A decent Scottish Ale, nice for a cold night.
