A Great Big Hug From Scotland
Wingback chairs, crackling fires, oak bookcases, old friends. If you ever find yourself somewhere like that, but feel there’s something missing, a glass of Scottish Style Heavy is that thing. Just ask the butler to fetch one.

Little Known Fact
Of all the craft beers we produce every year, Scottish Heavy is actually our Brewmaster’s favourite brew. And the one he is most proud of being involved with.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, - OCT 14, 2012
Body appears clear amber and started out with a pillowy tan cap. Mild hints of peat, malty softness, kind of a creamy apple but not...........all so very mild. Blech.............the feel is so soft and flat it almost felt slimy. Soft mnalty and with hints of oak.....not horrible but almost not drinkable...........is this an old bottle? Caramel, smoke, thats all. Seems old. AWWW Fawk i still have 2 more of these left.

Rusty brown pour. Light earthy aromas. Taste is sweet caramel and toffee. Nice and malty. Bit of peat. Not sure why this is getting such bad reviews.

Reading the scores on this site i didn’t expect much but was presently surprised, i quite like it.

Very sour flavour, like vinegar almost. Leaves an unpleasant acrid essence on your palate, nothing really positive to say about this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Basic ale. Dark Amber, little foam. Some caramel. No hops. Their hollow tree is better.

Nice malt bill, similar to all their other ales. Seems like a hybrid between a scottish style yeast strain and their house strain.

peponi (1861) - Hannover, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2017
Aroma: caramel and melanoidins. Appearance: clear amber color and creamy head. Taste: sweet, caramel, roasted dark malts, melanodins. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation. Overall: Not so bad, but too sweet.

On holiday in Canada 473ml can brown colored body with an off white head with a caramel malt hops aroma a caramel malt hops coffee sweet alcholic bitter taste with a bitter finish

cmacklin (1170) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a clear copper with a small, fizzy, short lived, beige head that fully dissipates. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, bread, vanilla, oak and just a hint of peat. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, vanilla, oak and light roast with a hint of peat in a mildly dry, bitter finish. Light to medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad. The 7% ABV is well hidden which makes for easy drinking.

gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2015
On June 19, 2015. At Big Rock Urban Eatery & Brewery, in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Clear deep copper oxide color, off-white head. Fruity, soem toffee taste. Dry, fruity aftertaste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, medium low bitterness. Weird cheese scent.

BVery (10501) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Can from Andrew - thanks! Very malty and sweet aroma. Taste is also quite sweet. Hint of peat. Decent for me.
