Poured into a Gordon's thistle glass. Pours an incredibly deep dark garnet, not quite black. Barest hint of a dark mocha head that drops fairly quickly leaving a thin layer of foam and nice lacing.

Aromas of deep, rich, toffee malt, hint of smoke and peat. Almost cloying aroma.

Flavors of tart, sour smokiness, light peat and woodiness, toffee. Flavor isn't as sweet as the aroma leads you to believe. As it warms, you can pick up some dark fruits, prunes and raisins. Finish is medium, with a tart cherry sourness lingering. Reminds me a little of a belgian sour red.

Mouthfeel is medium, with a soft carbonation. Almost watery feel for a wee heavy.

Overall, not what I expected. Not your run of the mill wee heavy. Less mouthfeel, less malty. Hints of wood aging (is it wood aged?). Nice effort. But misses the mark.

a - wow. I've had a lot of scotch ales before, but never one that poured this dark and thick. Its like pouring a RIS. good amount of carbonating. head dies down, but a film remains.

s - roasted peat smoked malts....almost a BBQ smell. faint sweetness from a dark fruit.

t - ah crap, its infected. surprising it wasn't on the nose.... tart cherry flavor... mouthfeel is thin... damn, i had high hopes.

I'd love to try this fresh/uninfected.

I love this beer, my only main concern is that with 9.20% ABV more than a couple of pints is too much.

It is a great example of a Scotch Ale with smooth bold flavor notes along with plenty of malt. Surprisingly easy to drink with an excellent mouthfeel and just enough hoppiness. A hint of roast caramel/coffee with the finish.

As with Schomhz porter and stout they do an excellent job with these malty ales.

A very dark brown almost black color pour with a small frothy tan head , lasting a bit wit a bit of spotty lacing , light to medium carbonation . Aroma is roasty , malty , and peaty with hints of nuts and brown sugar . Flavor is earthy , malty , slightly smokey , with rasins , coffee and a wee bit of alcohol at the finish , but fairly well hidden , long roasty finish leaving your lips sticky with the faintest hint of smoke and maybe molasis , Full body with a chewy , creamy mouthfeel , I would call it very drinkable because I gulped down three of them last night with ease , it kicked my Arse . Dude this shit is good , will buy again ! Thank you for bringing your stuff to Greenville .

Schmohz in bottles now. Very cool. The pour spilled a deep, dark, and thick pile of beer. The colour seems quite dark even for a bonafide wee heavy. A cocoa coloured head rose and fell. No lingering lace. The nose is very smoky and sweet smelling. Chocolate and nut. The taste is very smoky as well. The alcohol is well disguised under the robust 'sweet and peat' burnt flavours. The mouthfeel is heavy. This is a substantial concoction. The drinkability is good, but a few of these would have you planted on your arse not doing much. Not bad. An interesting example of the style.
