COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Leviathan Great Scott pays homage to the celebrated Wee Heavy Scottish Ales of the past. This beer is a full-flavored, full-bodied dark ale with a complex malt character. The hint of smokiness is a tribute to the peated malts that were historically used in Scottish brewing. Relax and enjoy with bagpipes playing in your head (kilt optional).

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Short Pump, VA. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toffee malts, anise, floral notes and a weird potato chip thing. The taste is big toffee notes, stone fruits, earth and an earthy hop finish. Full bodied, slight heat, slightly disjointed.

DocLock (7832) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
(Please read this review as if Sean Connery were narrating it). Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear dark coppery orange, looking brownish orange through indirect light, with a frothy off-white head that goes away quickly, but does leave a frothing of lace. Nose is spicy earthy peaty malt, mild smoky notes. Tastes rich on the palate, very smooth, with an initial big caramel earthy malt flavor, some syrupy and slightly smoky malts, hops, and liquid caramel late, with peat bog fruit. This one is big, bold, and tasty.
