Scotch Ale, or a Wee Heavy. At 9% alcohol, this big, brown brew is surely to warm you under that kilt. Malty, and much more than a wee delicious.

Thisis12ptfont (998) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Faint aromas of barley, grain malt, brown sugar and smoke. Appears a ruby black/brown with a thin foam rim. Taste is raisins, plums, figs, smokey malts and syrupy barley malts. Overall, slightly watery yet nice malt profile.

Dogbrick (9652) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Sample at Tied House. Dark brown color with a medium tan head that dissipates quickly to a film. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roast malt and dark fruit. Medium to full body with flavors of peaty malt, fruit and caramel. The finish is sweet with a toffee and malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Bif (1711) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 3, 2014
On tap. Served a dark copper clor with a tan head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel, butterscotch and bit of spice. Taste of butterscotch and caramel with some malt . Mild bitterness and a bit of a syrupy finish. Medium body, smooth with no hint of the 9% ABV. decent beer for the style but expected a bit more.

Pours amber brown with a foamy off white head. Aroma is very malty with lots of molasses. Flavor is syrupy sweet with molasses and brown sugar. Thick bodied and heavy. Decent beer.

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
A reddish copper ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet intense butterscotch with burned caramel and solvent notes, fake raisins, weird. In mouth, a sweet cloying fruity caramel malt with loads of chemical berry extract, astringent notes, raspy and unpleasant. On tap at Angel’s Trumpet.

EtTuCthulhu (1385) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - NOV 25, 2013
The appearance combines a hazyy orangeish brown color with a medium off-white head, and the aroma has caramel malts, dough yeast, and roasted malts apparent in the scent. The taste blends a mild sweetness, a slight umami, and a slight sourness, and the palate combines a soft carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a fairly abrupt finish.

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Malty with loads of caramel and a hint of dark fruits, maybe raisins. Meh, good but I was expecting better.

Narnad (1504) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Pours a ruby brown color with a quick fading off-white head. Aroma is very malty, mild earthy hops presence, light sweetness from caramel malt but well balanced. Flavor is well balanced with some light hints of peat, strong earthy hops notes and a strong, well balanced caramel and toasted malt notes. Body is perfect with the 9% hidden well by the semi-heavy body and low bubbly palate. Overall a very good beer. I like the way the brewer attacked this on the bit of a lighter, slightly dryer side of the style. The earthy presence really pops and brings the maltiness to the forefront of the flavor. For the price, this is a fantastic, flavorful beer.

Dark brown pour with caramel, toffee, and roasted malts. A little lighter bodied than I expected. But ok.
