Poured in a tulip. The color is an attractive dark tea color.

The aroma is the beer's strongest feature: candy, toffee, honey, sweet-rich candy.

Mouth feel: smooth, although not as smooth as other beers in this style.

The taste was disappointing, and not on par with the aroma.
I was expecting a rich finish, similar to the aroma. The taste was bitter, and the alcohol in the finish overwhelmed the toffee flavors in the finish. The alcohol lingered with warming.

Not the best representation of a scotch ale/wee heavy- I have tasted a number of beers in this style and drinking this beer left me wanting more overall from the finish.

Old Chub, Alesmith, Mackroken Flower, to name a few, outrank this beer in this style.

Bottle. Pours deep brownish red. Head a light tan. Sweet chocolate/caramel aroma and taste. Twists in a little bitterness, possibly from the hops, on the finish that's a bit rough. Clean, full mouth feel and not over carbonated. Hides the alcohol well, making it a touch dangerous. Good beer.
