Nose of caramels and brown sugar with bits of toffee and butterscotch supported by moderately toasted malts and a touch of ABV. Taste is rich caramels on a foundation of toasted malts that lasts through the finish. Body is a tad on the light side for a wee heavy. Beer is a solid, classic presentation of the style.

I tried this again recently after not having it for quite a few years and it just didn't seem to have the same "wow" affect that it did then. Still a good beer, but it seemed to be malt heavy this time. Hopefully it was just this particular brew. Still a pleasure though!
