Draught @ Willimantic Brewery: Served in a snifter. There was no head or lacing with this one. It was a ruby tinged brown color. The aroma was a bit lighter than expected. Some caramel sweetness, and maybe some oak. The taste is very good. Very smooth. Some sweet citrus, dark fruits and some caramel and smokiness.

500 ml bottle shared by Jarpo- thanks, Jason! Pours a hazy amber color with an eggshell ring for a head. Aroma of caramel malts, dried fruits, woody and earthy notes- fairly simple but it works. Same with the flavor, which hits the same notes. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel with a little bit of grit. Nice, simple Scotch ale.

Hazy copper with no head. Aroma of malty sweetness. Smooth and very tasty. This is light for the style but I like that. Very good beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes. First reviewed 11/19/2011. Poured from a 500 mL bottle into a tulip. My pour is a light hazy hazelnut bronze color with a rocky off-white head. Not much retention or lace. The aroma is full of toffee, bready malt, peat, earthy spices, and some booze. The flavor has a sharpness up front, with the malt having a toffee bite. More mellow roasted malt, earthy spices, and a bit of peat lead into a lightly boozy finish. This has a full, sweet body. The sticky sweetness softens as the sip progresses, but it is sweet through. The carbonation is on the light side. A fair amount of sweetness residue stays on the tongue after each sip. Wet Willy is obviously higher on the ABV than the average Scotch Ale; this is full, boozy, and enjoyable. Not one of the styles I really get into, but I enjoyed my glass.

Poured amber/brown color. Aroma is intense alcohol, sweetness, hay, and leather? Taste is very earthy rich and malty with a huge alcohol presence and near cloying sweetness. Unpleasant.

Rich malty scotch ale, dense and rich. Actually tasty but not very drinkable

Bottle; cloudy orange with small beige head; aroma-wood, oak, caramel, sweet; taste-heavy sweetness, medium bitterness, warming alcohol feel, full body, sticky, average carbonation. Complex aroma, too sweet

bottle... really light scotch, medium bright brown with a bit of orange, light tan head... generic malt almost wort like aroma, not bad but plain... the taste is equally boring, alcohol is well hidden but i’m unimpressed

500 ml bottle thanks to cletus. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma has sweet caramel malts, some ripe fruit and some boozy alcohol. The flavor has the sweet caramel/toffee and ripe plums, but is again a bit too boozy. I keep getting some hops in the flavor mid palate to the finish which creates some bitterness. This was definitely different than most Scotch ales I’ve had. Worth trying.
