Thick light brown brew with no head. Smells and tastes of massive malts (caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, etc) with a slight warming of alcohol. Truly enjoyable brew on a chilled night but with the price tag this is only a one time treat.

Pours a dark amber color with off-white head. Caramel malts, dark fruits, and a scotch note on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice warming scotch note.

Wow. First thing I was struck by was the malty aroma, with a touch of rotting grass. Color a reddish brown. Then I tasted it. I was drawn back to my uncles farm and the silage silo. That's the taste I get. I loved that smell and I love this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle. Poured a beautifully unfiltered mahogany-brown with a tan head that dissipated rather quickly. Taste of sweet malts, alcohol, and burnt malts. Average carbonated, medium body, oily texture. Overall, its unbalanced with too much of a rich malt profile, boozy taste and not enough dark roasted malts.

Real Heavy is a high gravity version of a Scotch ale. The pour is brown with a creamy light tan head. The carbonation is mild. The aroma is rich with malts, as is the taste. The beer is not very bitter. It is a smooth and pleasurable drink that pairs well with a variety of foods.

A nice amber pour with an iff white head. The flavor is full of caramel and malt forward with a taste of toasted malt. A full bodied beer that makes waiting for the deer enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bottle from Specs El Paso split 3 ways. Pours a hazy caramel brown color with a small off white head. The aroma is caramel, toffee, some dark fruit and tobacco. The flavor is big malty, caramel, toffee, a light peat, dark fruit, I did get a mineral note, this was ok.

Bottle pour dark copper with moderate ecru head. Nose caramel and toffee, apple, and light dank. Taste sweeter malt up front transition to spicy possible tobacco. Late palate high bitterness. Sweeter finish.

Bottle from the magical place that is Buddys Beer Barn (best before MAR 16 2017). Chestnut color with some red highlights, bubbly carbonation and a medium khaki head. Big malty aroma with a hint of booze and simple syrup. Great flavor that starts sweet, has a touch of bitterness and some lingering, menthol-esque smoke deep in the finish. Thats tasty.
