3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, light beige head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy, reddish brown (SRM 18) body......nose is light dried fruits, including, plum, cherry, fig, light brown sugar, hints of cereal.....taste is slight sweetness to start, leading to dried fruits, with plum, fig, cherry, then a dry, mildly bitter finish......mouth feel medium, sticky, carbonation low with light acid finish. This falls well within the style. The fruit dominated malt characteristics are very typical. The mild bitter finish is a bit higher than in many, but otherwise it is a quite good "Wee Heavy". BJCP 8/3/15/5/7

This stuff was fantastic. Hazy copper colored beer with an off-white head. Aromas of toffee and sweet caramel. Tastes of caramel, toffee, and lots of butterscotch. Sweet caramel malts mix with earthy/woody flavors quite nicely. Some hints of smoke too. Sweet toffee/butterscotch finish. Really smooth, yet a bit heavy. Delicious brew. I need some more.

12 oz. bottle, sent from Daniel719 (thanks a lot, man), pours a dark mahogany with a finger-width of tan head. Nose brings out caramel malts, whiskey, a touch of peat and booze. Flavour is similar, bringing lush, soft caramel malt notes, dark dried fruits, some light whiskey, and a touch of booze. There is even a decent hop component to this. Extremely smooth and rich in the mouth, with a very pleasing warming effect. Very well-constructed scotch ale - one of my favourites of the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint glass. Nice deep amber brown with a one finger white head. Lacing is nice. Strong aroma of malts, caramel, scotch and wood. The taste has the scotch booziness, wooden barrels, significant malts, peat and vanilla. Full body, slight oily. Butter finish with a scotch aftertaste. I really enjoyed this one.
