3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma malty, a touch of sourness and smoke. Taste initially quite sweet, almost a candy character, then mellows out to a more typical scotch ale maltiness with slight smoke. Palate slightly thick. Finish clean with slight hops.

Wee Heavy lite! Super nice Scotch ale. Incredibly dark copper pour. Malt notes are a little sweet and a lot caramel. Picking up some vanilla perhaps too. Lingering sweetness. Robust ABV at 9.2%, but not boozy, just warm. Recommended! B+/A-

Draught at Devil Craft Tokyo. It’s a great attempt at a scotch.really strong brown sugar. Sweet aroma. Just is too cloying compared to its rivals. Starts getting really annoying within the pint. First beer: half pinter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown pour with a white head. Nose of sweet caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, and toffee. Some butterscotch, vanilla, alcohol, and maybe a light nuttiness. There’s a lot of malty sweetness to the flavor. Plenty of caramel, toffee, and butterscotch. Notes of vanilla, dark fruit, and chocolate. Toasted nuts, light alcohol, and a nice toast character.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brown color with light beige color. Faint smoky malt aroma. High alcohol content is well masked as this is highly drinkable. Rich chewy body with sweet maltiness as well as caramel and roasted chestnuts

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - This beer has a small beige head that was mostly lasting, one ring of lacing, transparent body with a reddish brown hue, and lively, fast rising carbonation. The aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, and lightly hoppy. This beer tastes semi-sweet, malty, caramel, lightly hoppy, and wisps of alcohol. The palate is tingly, bubbly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, the first taste of this beer had a burning sensation in the back of my throat, but then it calmed down as the beer kept getting warmer. I enjoyed drinking this beer, it is a sipping beer at 9.2%ABV, worth trying, and I would drink this beer again.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy fine to large sized light brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark ruby red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The nice aroma was dark malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering dark malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of roasted malt mild hops and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a small head. Nose is very malty and a bit of caramel with a decent bit of sweetness in there. Taste is much the same, though it isn’t at all sweet. Nice and smooth and makes an easy drink. I like it.

Collins Pub in Seattle, from memory. Brown pour, malty aroma. Taste is all malt, not overly sweet, some complexity, signifcant smokey notes...or as my buddy says, "Sweety socks". It’s ok. Probably deserves another tasting, but my impression was that I wasn’t missing much.
