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.

Lighly hazy amber - red beer, small cream colour head. Palate is smooth and a little airy, modest fine carbonation. Smooth and semi sweet malts, mild caramel and soft malt cream. A trace of well integrated apple sits under mellow Port Wine and ripe orange. Finishes with a little alcohol spice, really not too much. Flavoursome and drinkable.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 30, 2014
On tap @ Hermitage. Clear amber/brownish pour with a khaki head. Pretty sweet and malty. A lot of toasted malts, nuts, and bread. Kind of floral. A decent enough malt profile. Could use some more fruit character. The flavor is kind of on the bitter and astringent side. A lot of bread and toasted grain. Kind of husky and peppery. A bit of raisin and grape skin. Maybe on the earthy side as well. Weird acidity on the finish.

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.

Lubiere (11586) - 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.

daknole (10350) - 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.

Dogbrick (10001) - 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.

Bottle. Murky deep amber pour with a smaller head. Some peat, caramel, dark fruit. Mild alcohol burn. Not bad.

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.
