COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

AmEricanbrew (5523) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 1, 2012
Brilliant red sunset color with beige foam. Fig, date, dark raison, nutty aromas. Smooth medium body. Rich, lightly sweet n spicy dark raison, date, earthy molasses flavors with a mild, nutty dark bread--very tasty.

daknole (8540) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Brown pour, tan head. Aroma is straight up raisins and a bad pinot noir wine. Flavor is much the same. Must be infected or else the brewers made a grave mistake bottling this.

22oz bomber pours sort of brown plum juice with virtually no head. The aroma offers up prunes and caramel and cut by a sour red wine note. The taste is similar with prunes, dates and caramel mixing with red wine like sourness and drying tartness. Seems a bit off.

Very nice beer; potent, and reminiscent of the Belgian styles. Dark coloured and slightly syrupy. Served at Tied House Mountain View, not sure if it was from bottle or tap.

timfoolery (1123) - California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
2010 bottle. Iím not sure what a fresh bottle offers, but this one was lighter, malt-wise than what I hoped and also much more crisp than anticipated. That being said, this was a very drinkable and tasty beer, especially after the aging. I imagine thatís not the case with a new bottle, but thatís only a guess. Pretty good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark amber small head. Sweet molasses at the start with a dry end with a little alcohol that comes through.

I love the experimental brews that this place is making. A big malty brew that has a ton of flavor but can be a bit hard on the palate.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 30, 2011
22oz bottle. Rating #23. Dark amber pour with a small head. Pleasant aroma, dark fruit, a little cherry and caramel malt. Flavor is a little off, almost a hint of vinegar, but not quite there yet, grape or cherry skins as well. (1883)

started off kind of promising, but whereís the smoke i was hearing about? really is a malt bomb, but the malt is more akin to that of newcastle than anything else in my opinion. seemed like newcastle x2 to me....not a compliment. 9& abv was well hidden and allowed a decent mouthfeel, but the whole thing tasted a little dirty to me. who knows how old the bottle was. no hops at all. price was decent but the beer wasnt.
