look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

this is everything i want in a scotch ale, and its perfect for the fall time. its rich in its grain composition, packed with earthy but not smoky red malt and with some caramel to round it out, but this particular version is approaching bone dry, not laced with residuals like many others, which for me makes it close to perfect for the style. its fuller bodied, frothy as they come, and with just enough carbonation to keep it moving, but it has english barleywine elements with the yeast structure and with the alcohol strength that just pierces through a little bit. its a rich brew, a bomber worth sharing i think, but not necessarily too much for one man. its dry in the finish, almost like a real high attenuating irish ale yeast was used, it has that level of completeness, but tastes like an english strain. my favorite scotch ale of the season so far, and one of the better middle ages beers going at the moment.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A - dark brownish amber with a thick layer of dense, brownish, off white head that has decent retention

S - baked apples, peat, caramel

T - baked apples, caramel, some candy sugar, faint graininess, alcohol

M - medium to full bodied, well carbonated

This is a big bodied, full flavored Wee Heavy. The flavor is bold and balanced. The alcohol is present but tamed. My only disappointment was that there was a faint grainy note in the finish. Otherwise, this was a big, bold offering that is worth trying.

Poured into thistle glass. Slightly cloudy deep garnet with a small tan head. Smells of bourbon and alcohol, malt and sweetness. Taste is clean, sweet malt with a thick sweet boozy finish with crackery flavors hanging over. Delicious and dangerously drinkable.
