4.08/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A clear, dark brownish-red Ale with a thick, clingy, tan head. The smell is malty and sweet reminiscent of butterscotch,as well as, herbal. The taste is earthy, reminding me of peat, along with a roastedess, nuttiness, and slight bitter finish. As it warms (some) the taste of the alcohol becomes more prominent. The body is firm in my mouth. A surprising taste and quite drinkable.

"A handmade Ale brewed in the ancient Brew House of the oldest inhabited house in Scotland."

4.41/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a dark chocolate brown, almost opaque color into a snifter with a 1/2F head.

Aroma: plum, raisin, fig, which continue strong throughout the tasting.

Mouth feel: pleasantly carbonated- more than other wee heavies I have tasted.

Taste: smooth fig, plum and raisin with a light alcohol finish.

This is a classic wee heavy. The flavors are similar to American beers in the same style which are only slightly more pronounced. This is an impressive beer- low ABV, yet a sipper. The body is lighter than American styles, making it easier to drink.

This is the real deal.
