Rich malty flavors of caramelized and toasted grains dominate this robust Scotch ale. A hint of rye adds a crisp, scotch-like, old-world beer character, reminiscent of a simpler life from centuries ago. It’s a wee-bit heavy.

Bottle. Hazy Amber with a very thin beige head. Aroma of dark sugar and fruits. Sweet malty burnt caramel taste with a light bitter touch at the finish very rich. Handles the alcohol well. Medium carbonation. A fine example of the style

Poured from a bomber into a hoppin frog snifter amber with a slight off white head. Aroma reminds me of rye whiskey with bitterness. Flavor is smooth honey. I get apple with this brew but maybe its because it is an older bottle. Nice bitter finish. Overall a better than average wee heavy/red ale. The rye comes out making this a savory treat.

"Nice mix of sweet and peat! Toffee like sweetness, but light, with gentle hopping and a kiss of smoke that goes very well. Very smooth though medium to full bodied on the palate."
