On tap at Creation Cafe. Poured a wonderfully deep burnished bronze with wonderful head and some decent lacing throughout. Huge deep malty scents, with lots of caramel and toffee and a nixe bit of earthiness, as well. Great huge sweet malty flavor, thick and deep with (in order) caramel, toffee, peat, and licorice flavors and a nice earthy hop finish. Thick with a bit of alcohol heat, this is an excellent and warming wee heavy.

16oz can received via Growling at the Moon from jmarsh123. Thanks Jeremy!

Poured into an imperial pint with a 1" tan head, over the cloudy chestnut brew. Head collapses loudly and relatively quickly, with leggy but fleeting lace. Aroma is dark malts and lightly alcoholic.

Taste begins with meaty grain sweetness, some tannin action in the middle, and closes with alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is excellent. Great stuff, nicely fits into my idea of a Wee Heavy.

This was the beer finally worth reviewing since a 10 month absence from BA.

(a)- Poured with a very nice tan lacing from the can, not a alot of head. Looks like a traditional brown ale, not too far off from Wee Mac. 4.5/5

(s)- Toffee, carmel. Perfect except for the strong alcohol smell. (4.5/5)

(t)- Awesome. Does have a strong alcohol bite, but that is to be expected with this guy. (4/5)

(m)- Not too heavy on the carbonation. Surprisingly not as heavy as I expected. (4.5/5)

(0)- Awesome offering from Sun King. I'm thankful I was able to find this 4-pack at 21st Amendment in Carmel, saved me from a trip to downtown. Would buy again, but probably wont find it ever again, lol. (4.5/5)

A: serious brown tone with a hint of deep red in the body. Nice off white head. Looks like a tasty brew.

S: malts, caramel and toffee. None of which are jumping out at you.

T: How about some flavor! Rich, malty, sweet and right on the boarder of too much. Caramel and a bite of alcohol right before the finish. Not your light Scottish Ale. One I will continue to drink every chance I get.

M: Big full body and a bit creamy as well.

Overall: What a beer! Never gotten into the Scotch Ales before as the first couple I had stunted my growth in this area. But Wee Muckle has given me new found optimism! Terrific beer! Got a little bite to it, but a smooth bite it is

16 Oz can poured into a snifter

A- A deep colored murky red. Very little of an off white head. A big looking beer.

S- A sweet caramel malt dominates the nose. There is a slight roasted character as well. A load of dark fruit. A slight grain and yeast as well. A really strong nose on this one.

T- A big sugary sweetness up front. A massive silky smooth caramel body to this beer. A bunch of toffee and nougat. A huge dark fruit presence, there is ton of fig and plum in this beer. A big grain flavor and a nice fruityness from the yeast.

M- A massive feel to this beer. Really syrupy and silky smooth. A slight warming. Dangerously drinkable.

O- This is a damn good Scotch ale. Its big, syrupy and flavorfull. A perfect candidate for barrel aging, do it Sun King. My only gripe is the price, 17$ a 4 pack is a bit steep but it is a great brew.
