a decent example of the style, with lots of caramel and honey notes. gets too sweet as it warms, as lots of scottish ales do. very good but not something i could drink a lot of.

Pours redish brown with a caramel white head. Smells of sweet malt, fruit, and a touch of citrus. Taste is smooth sweet malt and citrus with a touch of hops. The flavor is fantastic.

Pours a ruby amber color with a caramel colored head. Brown sugar and chocolate nose. Lightly creamy mouthfeel with just the right amount of carbonation for balance. Caramel malt, ripe fig, and chocolate flavors. A pretty fun Scottish ale.

Laddy, this is a mighty fine Wee-Heavy. Super malty, has a sweetness to it that opens up the brew the longer you sip it. Lovely and not overpowering while being fit for malt heads.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours hazy reddish amber with a small beige head that dissipates leaving nice lacing behind. Aroma is not strong, but sweet and malty with caramel and toffee notes dominating, with just a touch of hay. The flavor is medium sweet, very malty but also a bit spicy - almost like rye malt, some fruitiness and biscuit notes. Spicy notes lead to a "hot" finish, almost like it was a higher ABV than 6.5%. Medium body, prickly carbonation.
