MarcoDL (4697) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2017
Bottle. Dark brown pour. Aroma of mild peat, yeast, red fruit and caramel. Taste has sweet yeast ester, caramel, red fruit and some subtle smokey peat in the finish. I would have liked more peat, could work nicely with caramel from a scotch ale.

leghorn99 (254) - roma, ITALY - NOV 13, 2016
Una tradizionale Scotch Ale "Wee Heavy" dal colore ramato; abbondante e persistente schiuma color beige. Aroma intenso e coinvolgente con profumi di caramello, frutta rossa, agrumi, erbe aromatiche ed un leggero tocco vinoso. In bocca, dove vengono riproposte le fragranze percepite allolfatto, morbida ed agrodolce, con una saporosit sontuosa ed elegante di malto tostato, miele di castagno, liquirizia e una leggera vena affumicata e torbata. Splendido retrogusto dove si alternano note secche, amare, di caramello e spezie.
