4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours clear and brown with copper highlights and a fleeting, beige head. The aroma is an intoxicating, plush and malty swirl of vanilla, caramel, toffee and big-time mocha that’s heavier on the milk chocolate than the deeply roasted coffee portion. Full-bodied, oily and cushiony with soft carbonation. The flavor features sumptuous notes of toffee, caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Leans sweet, but is far from cloying. Finishes lightly sweet with a buttery praline aftertaste. This is right there with Alesmith Wee Heavy. Instant Top Ten beer for me! This baby reminds me why a well-done Scotch ale, although tough to come by, remains my favorite style of beer. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

Bomber thanks to the legendary footbalm. He’s not a man, he’s more. In this context, he’s my friend. Thanks Eric. Pours a dark brown color with a very small head. A big sweet nutty and toffee nose, berries. Big heavy flavors of toffee, leather, smoke, berries, a somewhat thin palate. The overall beer is dead on for this very American style. Excellent. Has some light oxidation which helps for me. Mellows it. Lovely brew.

Bottle. Dark red colour with a tiny tan head. Aroma has a thick malt profile, burnt caramel, caramelized sugar, some oaky vanilla stuff, plenty molasses, cinnamon, pepper, sweet liquorice. Taste is almost overwhelmingly sweet with lots of pepper to provide a kind of balance; also molasses, cinnamon, tons of dark malts and sugar. The high abv is well-hidden but provides a thick warmth to the finish.
