3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer poured a hazy reddish brown color and formed light tan foamy head that left circular lace as it subsided. A medium amount of carbonation and some sediment is present. A complex aroma of malt, caramel, raisins and other dark fruit. Not as heavy an aroma as others, but more in the mix if you will. The flavor was of malt, caramel, slight bit of chocolate and a hint of raisin. A slightly lighter body than I would expect for this style and slightly sweet finish. The alcohol is well hidden in this one. Also best if had at cellar temp or just slightly cooler to help draw out more of it's character
Toffee, raisins, "julmust". Quite sweet but with enough background bitterness to make it pleasant. A nice scotch ale Samuel214 (1474) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2017
Burk från SB. Mörk kastanjefärgad med tjusigt, krämigt smutsvitt lock. Maltigt och rostat med toner av knäck, karamell, kola, torkad frukt, mörkt socker, melass. Lite beska från humlen väger upp. Välbalanserat och smarrigt! pappabear (19) - Granbury, Texas, USA - NOV 22, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2017 Pours a foggy brown with an amber tint with 1 finger of head with good lacing. Smell is complex caramel, very malty in a good way, toffie, and roast. Taste is rich with a smooth finish malty, smokey, and slightly hoppy. I normally drink Belhaven when I want a scotch ale, not anymore. gr_pa (849) - siemianowice, POLAND - NOV 21, 2017

a great drink; malty complex flavor; full body, creamy, soft carbonation, medium sweetness, long finish Subliminal64 (223) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2017
Where Purchased: 347ml bottle from Meijer in Michigan
Consumed: from a pilsner glass
Aroma: Smells malty and sweet with hoppy note.Seems complex.
Appearance : unfiltered dark gold brown with lots of head that disappears within the first few sips. No lacing, but lots of lively carbonation.
Taste: very sweet and malty with an underlying hop note. Would never guess the IBU was 50 or the ABV was 8.8. Impressive. Lots of complex tastes yet easy to drink.
Palate : full body. Slight bitter with sweet aftertaste. Great carbonation.
Overall: this was a complex beer. Lots of malts. Easy drinking, and would never know it was as boozy as it was. I was glad to try and will buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

It pours dark brown and it is fairly clear. It has a tan head with low head retention. A full malt aroma, complex and inviting. It has some caramel and moderate smoky elements. The are also low aromas of alcohol as well. There are flavors of caramel and nuts. There is a low roasted character to it with low smoke. There is moderate bitterness and a very low dried fruit (Plums) element. It has a moderately full body with some alcohol warmth. Overall, a complex malty beer that highlights malts with a bit of light smoke. A great drinking Wee Heavy.
