2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown color with a smallish off-white head on it. Nose has a little bit of toast and nuts in there, with just a hint of some spices in there. Taste is also pretty spicy, with a hint of some sweetness up front. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the Wine and Beer Haus, Seaside, OR. Caramel malt aroma with some hoppiness. Pours a deep caramel color with a thin beige head and very little lacing. Caramel malt flavor though a little watery. Finishes dry with some hops as well as some metallic flavors which is unfavorable. Ok scotch ale but the finish isn't good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled: unk, vintage 2011
A: dark ruddy copper with little head formation and only a target formation of foam. No lace.
S: bread pudding smell with caramelized sugars and some bread and cinnamon. Has a slightly aged smell to it.
T: Sweet with the slightest bitter and sharp edge to it. I’ve come to find a nice, subtle alcoholic blade in a Wee Heavy goes a long way to help harden the beer. This is no slouch. Some honey notes and rye bread flavors.
M: Medium on heavy with low carb and a semi dry finish. Nothing special, but suited for the style.
O: Decent beer. I would drink again in a heartbeat. Great for the season (or maybe a little colder).
Serving type: bottle

Pours amber with a nice sized light tan head that slowly dissipates. The nose is malt. Very creamy texture, the taste is very malty with some caramel sweetness. A touch of hops on the finish gives this brew a very balance taste profile. Very satisfying brew. Try it with nuts or smoke cheese.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. Dark mahogany color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Toasted malt, fruit and hops in the nose. Medium body with flavors of dark fruit, earthy malt and hops. The finish is sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Not terrible but i can only compare it to the barrel aged version thar is far superior. Caramelly and somewhat vanilla-y but the finish is a bit untamed. Bitter and somewhat earthy.

bottle in trade from michaelinwa. Nice aroma on this one - malty caramel and dark fruits? nice thicker palata. slight warming alcohol at end of taste (with hops). For me it just didn’t quite all come together - parts better than whole

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from trade with michaelinwa. Pours a cloudy darkish amber color with a small head that fades quickly. Aromas is a bit faint, caramel malt, toasted malt, grassy/earthy hops, and a hint of nuts. Taste is solid, nice caramel flavor and a moderate hoppiness, which is a tad unusual for this style but I think it helps. Finish is a bit off, leaves a metallic taste. Overall, an ok scotch ale.
