Strong malts with a nice caramel overtone. It reminds me of a better version of... a beer I can't remember the name of. So there's that useful bit of info. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I'm told this is a Wee Mac on steroids. Dark amber pour with zero head. Aroma is super sweet. Flavor is still very mild. Malty and smooth, sweet caramel. Seems pretty usual and typical of Sun King.

Can, thanks to ridglens, 01/14/2014. Pours dark brown, ruby highlights, yellow tan head fades to an almost still surface. Aroma has slight smoke, fruity dark caramel malts, some toffee and touch of chocolate, bread. Taste is sweet fruitcake and caramel, nutty malts, mild roast and hops. Medium body. Probably not my favorite Scottish ale, but decent.

Dogbrick (8140) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours a murky dark amber color with a medium foamy khaki head that recedes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Smoked malt, caramel and slight hops in the nose. Medium to full body with flavors of peaty malt, caramel and fruit. The finish is smoked malt and fruit. Decent overall.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 19, 2013
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a medium sized head of foamy tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-transparent dark ruby red brown colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was brown ale. The clean mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering dark malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet Helles Bock cloves mild licorice mildly vinous spices brown malt caramel crisp and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

wickster (85) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Poured from a 16 oz can that sat in my beer fridge for about 18 months or more. Happy to say it held up well. It’s a scotch ale, so robust malts a plenty. In not a huge fan of scotch ales, the sun king version has a bit of a bit to it that I find enjoyable.
