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.

BevMo is pushing the hell outta these beers. Either they arenít selling well, or they know someone because they plunked these right on every aisle and at the checkout. So I bit and bought on for $4, not bad and actually money well spent. Pretty nice drop of suds. It didnít really strike me a a scotch ale, let alone a "double" scotch ale...more like a Strong Ale. Aroma of chewy caramel, nougat, and some prune juice. Some peaty/smoke notes do show up in the flavor, light molasses, some Tootsie Rolls and caramel. Medium sweetness helps the beer. Personal opinion is, with a few more tweaks, this can be a great beer.

Pours a dark brown color with a small white head. Aromas are caramel and malt. The taste is heavy on the malt with hints of scotch. The alcohol isnít noticeable. Itís a decent scotch ale that was easy to drink.

Bomber from BevMo. Pours ruddy dark amber with a little beige head. Sweet, smokey malt aroma. Med plus body. Flavor is treacle. Not getting smoke. Pretty much malt. Mild fruit/hop towards the finish, but mostly malt.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2010 $3.50 22oz from bevmo. 9% abv actually, breaking hermitageís run of 8ís! lol! pours a thin light brown. both the aroma and taste are a lil thin of what i expected. some chewy to the body, but there is a slightly tart and funky under tone to the taste. some cherry notes, slightly drying. i was expecting a smoother, heavier sweetness, but stil a pretty good brew.

Bomber from BevMo. Sweet nose. Somewhat earthy with some dark fruits in there. Sweet, with some roasted flavors. Smooth and easy to drink. Some toffee in the finish. Very well hidden alcohol. A little lacking in richness, but still pretty tasty.
