4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A magical scotch bag of raisinets. A beautiful opaque dark ruby in the light, pours with a small head and some lacing. Smells sweet and peat. Tastes like the aforementioned sweeties with so much grown-up behind it. Just a touch of smoke, plenty of toffee, choccy and fruit along with the perfect bitterness that never lets on about the 50ibus and just the tiniest hint of the 8.5%. A session beer that will end your session well early. Hot contender for my favourite beer from an almost flawless brewery. Git in ma baelly wee man.

This is all right, but the hops used are just a bit too bitter for my liking.

maybe itís me..but this one just didnít do it for me..expected something smokey or sour,but instead,was kinda flat..maybe got a bad batch,but very under whelmed by this..iíve heard a lot of good things about Founders,and the Breakfast Stout is really good..but this one was a dud

Smokey and sweet and strong and malty with a long and reasonably hoppy finish. Completely brilliant ipa variant.

Subtly cereal, sweet caramel malty aroma, perfectly balanced. Beautiful rich dark red colour. Surprisingly subtle flavour at first leading into a creeping cereal taste accentuated by the caramelisation.

Delicious beer. Huge malts, very sweet, and even some bittering hops in the back. Almost reminds me of an American Barleywine, with its sweet viscosity. Pouts a dark mahoney amber, leaving a nice dark red lacing; with a forward, almost creamy head. Superb stuff.

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".

3/8/2013. From bottle. Copper color with a tan head. Malty aromas with spice, caramel and light fruit. Bitter hoppy flavors with fruit and spices. I didnít pick up any smoke, but still a very good beer.
