look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A creamy, low profile head tops the dense and cloudy, dark raisin-brown brew. Not much aroma, just a hint of malty molasses and a few alcohol esters.

Well presented grain up front with some biscuit and bittersweet molasses on toast flavors in the middle and a smattering of hops in the background.

Nice carbonation, despite the small head, possible due to higher abv, although it is not listed on the bottle. Not overdone, this wee heavy goes down easy and has enough depth of flavor to hold its own with some haggis and mashers.

Deep brown, almost black coloring upon pour, 12oz bottle into snifter. Very little head, but off white where it is. Nice caramel, molasses on the nose. Very smooth, sweetness upon a low carbonated mouthfeel. Overall great Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy, give her a try! Cheers!

2.08/5  rDev -46%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

Pours dark but clear, with a tan head of moderate size and retention. Minimal lacing.

Aroma: more like wine vinegar than Scotch Ale.
Flavor: Some vinegar here too, about matching the dark malts. Light smoke in the finish.

O: "Unique taste" indeed. Probably not at its best, but then again the bottle was from a reliable store, and carefully cold-stored for just a few months. I note other reviewers have reported "bad' versions of the bottled ale.

3.98/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: A near opaque brown with lively red highlights. Poured with a light tan head that dissipated.

Aroma: Sweet and yeasty.

Taste: Candy sweet like the aroma with a suggestion of breadiness. Scant hoppiness in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: The perfect body for this style, though maybe a little over carbonated.

Overall: This is a winner! Very enjoyable on a cool Fall night.

4.54/5  rDev +17.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: deep brown almost black. near opaque but with a reddish brown hue at the edges. small tan head that sticks around as a lacing

Smell: brown sugar, earthy hops, some dark fruits

Taste: super sweet brown sugar up front, gives way to a peaty, earthy hop bitterness, and finishes off with a dark fruit, and toffee/chocolate sweetness. alcohol is present and almost comes off bourbon-like

Mouthfeel: pretty heavy, pretty sticky

Overall: that is a tasty brew. sweet but balanced, dark and rich. knowingly alcoholic. not much you could do to make it better.
