4.16/5 rDev +16.2%
On tap at Nobi Public House.
A: Pours a dark brown, nearly black color. A two finger tan head forms and gently recedes to a ring that sticks throughout. Light lace is left behind.
S: Up front is big smoke aromas. Not full on peat, but more smoked malt. Toasted malt, chocolate, wood, lightly sweet in the nose as well. Very nice.
T: Follows the nose with plenty of smoke flavor. Almost meaty smoked malt. Toasted and slightly sweet caramel malts. Chocolate, wood. I like it.
M/D: A medium to full body. Moderate carbonation, smooth. The heavy smoked malt character makes this a slower sipper than normal for me. Though still very enjoyable.
This is a good Scotch Ale. I am very happy to have found this, and very pleased that this is not just sweet malts that many American brewery versions are. There is plenty of depth here. Very nice.

3.38/5 rDev -5.6%
Served on-tap at the Flying Saucer in Austin.
A: Dark brown, nearly opaque with garnet hues on the edges. Off-white head.
S: Peat smoke, alochol, sweet malts.
T: Peat smoke really strong, alcohol there, toffee, earthy hops, more than usual for the style, but still in the background.
M: Nice and thick, but not as much as I'd like. Carb is low as it should be, dry finish.
O: I liked this offering from Rogness, but won't likely be seeking it out again. I found the peat smoke to be overpowering, but at least it was there. Iron Thistle is easier drinking, but little to no smoke. Rook has more flavor, but I'm still searching for that great Texas Wee Heavy.
