12oz into pint glass at cellar temp (approx 55 degrees)

Pours dark mahogany brown with ruby edges; almost opaque in the glass. Short-lived creamy tan head leaves a touch of lace. I notice a lovely cranberry color as the glass empties.

Scent is scotch, peat smoke, molasses, and dark fruits.

I taste sweet molasses, peat smoke, scotch, figs and possibly cherries. There is a hint of chocolate near the end. Caramel. A nice bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is rich, soft and chewey with just a slight hint of warming. Though I notice others have found this beer very carbonated my bottle was only lightly carbonated.

Drinkability is good and the abv is hidden quite well.

A delicious beer - one of my favorite Wee Heavies.
