A- It pours a nice dark copper/amber color. Little head even with a aggressive pour and no lacing remained afterwards.
S- Great nose, that revealed a strong malt base with touches of delicious toffee and chocolate. Faint waft hops in there.
T- Wow, it really gives you kick. A great wash of malt, plums or cherries and peat flows over my palate. The malt profiles in this are excellent and complex.
M- Medium to full body. Slight alcohol kick. Quite easy to drink for being a higher ABV
O - I really liked this beer. I had an Old Chub earlier and followed up with this to compare. This had a much stronger smell and taste to it. Old Chub is great, but it is more subdued than this beer. The peat and the dark fruit have a distinct presence and make it stand out from the other Scotch Ales I've have. I will definitely drink this again. Great beer.

Pours a dark brown color. No head, lacing, or retention. Smells of alcohol, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, and slight syrup. Fits the style of a Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of alcohol, sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of oatmeal, and slight syrup. Overall, very weak appearance, good body, and decent aroma.
Serving type: on-tap

Mud cola brown with a tiny ring of cream foam. Not attractive.
Strong concentrated grain stew, dark caramel maltiness, oak, burnt sugars, some roast bitterness, vinous notes, and a faint whiff of sweet mossy smoke. Phenolic and a little fruity. Notes of rum raisin, black strap, and date.
Sweet malt, dark sugar, peat, treacle, wet smoke, date sugar, light maple, medicinal notes, and faint crabapple tartness. The latter note plays into that oaky vinous note. Tinge of tartness is, actually, relieving. Tasty thick malty middle with a semi-tarnished unripe cherry finish.
A little stinging, but it's the tartness, not the booze. Alcohol level is right, wee heavy. I like this warmth. The carbonation is slighted, however. The body is okay, but some more effervescence would really elevate the overall mouthfeel.
Best Leinenkugels beer I've had, to-date.
