The Scottish really like the first sip from the bomber.
AR: buttery fudge, caramel lollipop
AP:wee hazy reddish amber, wee stouthy creme beige head
F: caramel, fudgy, wee alcholic, perfume floral, rather syrupy feeling with ŕ little dryness, wee soft but rich carbonation, medium bitterness, after ŕ while ŕ warming feeling - this must be strong! 8,2% - not over the 10 that I projected... Finish is warming, fudgy sweet caramel

bottle @ Harvest. It pours dark with a good beige head on top. Very malty with nut and scotch-like hints. Good bitterness. Great beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the better Wee Heavies I've had. Malty sweetness throughout and afterwards, but not excessively so. A hint of caramel as well. Quite syrupy in mouthfeel, but without the negatives I sometimes associate with that. ABV is low for the style, but not too low. A very good beer.

650ml bottle from Cotteridge Wines which poured a deep amber colour.It sported quite a large head which didn’t last and no lacing.Malt on the aroma with a bit of biscuit.Lot of malt in the taste along with caramel and a slight fruitiness.The alcohol is only reall hinted at.Tastes ok but certainly not the best Hoppin Frog beer i have had recently,would like to try the barrel aged version even so.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
65 cl bottle @ O’Hara’s Freehouse. Rated on 17.04.2010
Aroma is sweet with caramel, some toffee, hints of berries and sugary notes. Flavour is also rather sweet and high on caramel. Also some fruity and berry notes, toffee and hints of alcohol. Too sweet – but what else could an American Scotch Ale be?

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz. bottle @Lúpulo Feroz. Liquorice, malty and sweet aromas (some anisette like ones). Pours dark reddish, brightless, almost clear, with very tiny off-white head, quickly vanishing, poor lacing. Ligh to medium body, flat carbonation, oily texture. Taste is sweet, fruity, caramel, with sweet aftertaste. Boring.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Roasted caramel malts on aroma. Fizzy, creamy, tan head. Clear amber body. Taste confirms aroma, with brown sugar, slight butterscotch, and almost a cloying effect on the finish. Overall, well balanced with good alcohol, without being hot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep amber, sediment floats about, moderate to large sudsy sandy head, dies quickly, leaving little lacing. Big mealy and biscuity nose. Slight prunish background. Very malty and biscuity on the tongue. A touch nutty, but otherwise very malty. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Finishes like an extremely biscuity Amber. I enjoy malty beers, but this one is almost too much.   Good, but pretty one dimensional.
