Grandpa's rating

Grandpa (327) - Verona, New York, USA - AUG 28, 2007
It poured a clear, deep brown with a small off-white head. The strong malt flavor was lightly balanced with the hops. The robust mouth-feel was mellow and left a malt laced aftertaste. It satisfied all the criteria of a "wee Heavy.

Subliminal64 (212) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2017
Where Purchased: 347ml bottle part of a winter mixer pack from LCBO Consumed: from a chalice Aroma: sweet and malty with a medium yeast smell Appearance : filtered dark ruby brown with lots of head that disappears immediately. No lacing. Taste: very sweet and malty. No hops to been seen. Palate : medium body. Very sweet aftertaste. Good carbonation. Overall: It was very sweet. Malts are present, but the sweetness overules. Also, the alcohol hits like a freight train (even though its on;y 7.4% ABV). I was glad to try and would buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

Неплохой Шотландский эль. Чувствуется вкус карамели. Пиво достаточно карбонизированно . К ужину стоит попробовать.

Frothmeister (827) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours clear and a lovely dark chestnut colour with a thin beige head. On the nose toasted hazelnuts, toffee, burnt sugar, and light cocoa. Sweet, with lots of dried fruit. Raisin, dates, molasses underneath, light alcohol, faint earthiness, and mineral notes that head into more pronounced sticky dried fruit notes, treacle, licorice, with faint bitterness and mineral notes in the finish. Oooh. I like this a lot. This beer is a treat.
