A: This poured a clear dark copper with a little light tan head.
S: It smelled like earthy copper hops and some toffee and nutty malt.
T: It tasted like copper and earthy toffee and nutty malt. It had an earthy bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was an average scotch ale at best. The scent and taste and body weren't bad, but not that enjoyable. The finish was a little rough too, so it wasn't easy to drink or enjoy. Not recommended.

Nice dark amber color with a nice head - very little lacing. Rather strong flavor but not overwhelming. Roasted caramel notes with a slightly bitter (but not too bitter). Very nice mouthfeel. Overall a rather tasty beer. Will be buying this one again.

Pours a clear brown amber or almost iced tea color. Thumb sized tan head from an aggressive pour falls pretty quick no real lace.

Aroma is lots of caramel, hints of toffee some dark fruits and oaked booze notes. Some underlying earthiness peat like maybe a hint of vanilla, pretty standard Wee Heavy aromas.

Taste is like the nose lots of caramel and toffee, dark fruit hints. Some good boozy notes, vanilla hints, touches of oak and earthiness.

Mouthfeel is a solid medium with carbonation that is unassuming.

Overall not bad a wee heavy not the best but reasonably priced and quite drinkable, a big malty treat.
