Poured from 750 mL bottle into snifter. 12.7% ABV. Vintage 2019 stamped on the label.
A: Pours a dark murky caramel brown with 1/2 inch light tan head with good retention.
S: Sweet caramel malt, berries and cherries, soft oak, brown sugar, and hints of dark dried fruit and peat.
T: Sweet caramel malt, berries and cherries, brown sugar, crème brulee, soft almond and vanilla, dark dried fruit, and hints of soft oak and even licorice.
M: Soft and supple feel. Medium heavy body...drinking a bit lighter than the hefty 12.7%. Loads of caramel and fruit sweetness, but not overdone. Lingers and matures nicely on the palate.
D: "Scotch-Style Ale" (as it is called on the label) underrepresents and undersells this one. This blend of barrel-aged and un-aged Wee Heavy beers offers so much more. Layers of malt complexity. Nice fruit elements. Lovely late winter sipper.

This was a very nice beer. Pours a deep, rich-looking copper-honey color with some fluffy light tan foam that eventually fades, and some nice spotty lingering lacing. Smells of rich malt, raisin, caramel, whiskey and some grain. Taste follows the nose, along with some brown sugar, vanilla and a little muted hops. Well-balanced, mild warming alcohol and the high ABV is fairly well-hidden. Very trace yeast notes in the background. Smooth, rich, slightly sticky mouthfeel with good carbonation. A very enjoyable beer, and I will keep an eye out for other offerings from this brewery.

Served in a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.

Appearance: It comes off a deep mahogany color brown tinted Amber with an orange tinted head which initially Rose a full finger's length with a gentle pour.

Smell: strong whiskey and toffee scent but it dissipates off the nostrils very quickly.

Taste: Sweet toffee and he suggested whiskey with a special feel of hops and malt. Smooth mellow malts, feels a touch of barleywine.

Mouth: exceptionally sticky beer, it's medium carbonation with a very full body. Very addicting aftertaste you will finish 750ml very quick then the alcohol hits you.

Overall: an absolute gem, it has a very strong whiskey feel but the rest of the malts and barley overcome what is a real good beer. Personally it's a shame that I'm going to share the next two bottles with my closest friends but you never lose. Salud!
