3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The Highlander (this aged in wine barrels, I believe) is one of the most scrumptious beasts in liquid form Iíve had, so I was excited to try this one. The nose is cereal, candied fruits, caramel, whole grain bread, dulce de leche, a bit of hay, and a very slightly smoky earthiness. Medium mouthfeel, slightly fizzy carbonation and of medium viscosity. The taste is moderately sweet and low cerealy bitter. It finishes cerealy and slightly dry. Good, but nowhere near as memorable as The Highlander Himself; itís clear that whatever barrels they use to turn this into Him ó man, those are some magic wooden contraptions.

Shared 22 oz. bottle. Deep amber with light beige head. Sweet malty aroma. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel, and booze. Alcohol-warming finish. A tad too sweet for me.

22oz bottle 12/2/15 (Specís-Addison)-38į in Snifter-Pours brown with a small tan ring for a head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, and maple smoked bacon. Taste of the same with a bit of alcohol and sweetness. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick light brown brew with no head. Smells and tastes of massive malts (caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, etc) with a slight warming of alcohol. Truly enjoyable brew on a chilled night but with the price tag this is only a one time treat.

Wow. First thing I was struck by was the malty aroma, with a touch of rotting grass. Color a reddish brown. Then I tasted it. I was drawn back to my uncles farm and the silage silo. That's the taste I get. I loved that smell and I love this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Poured a beautifully unfiltered mahogany-brown with a tan head that dissipated rather quickly. Taste of sweet malts, alcohol, and burnt malts. Average carbonated, medium body, oily texture. Overall, itís unbalanced with too much of a rich malt profile, boozy taste and not enough dark roasted malts.

Real Heavy is a high gravity version of a Scotch ale. The pour is brown with a creamy light tan head. The carbonation is mild. The aroma is rich with malts, as is the taste. The beer is not very bitter. It is a smooth and pleasurable drink that pairs well with a variety of foods.
