(Served in an American pint glass)

A-This beer pours a mahogany brown clear body with a good carbonation and a tan rocky head.

S- This beer smells of sweet caramel malt and light molasses. There is a faint hop aroma that is really nice with the sweetness.

T- This has a nice roasted malt almost candy sweet taste with a hint of some smoke. It has a nice earthy hop finish but its not hop bitterness.

M- Nice medium-full mouthfeel with no astringency or alcohol warmth.

D- This is a great example of a wee heavy and has the good rich malt complexity. It has a nice malt flavor with hops playing in the background. The smoky flavor is very faint and is more of malt that taste smoky than any peat smoke. Very well put together beer.

Beer poured a nice deep red color, very clear with a nice head that quickly dissipates. Love the aroma with hints of caramel and toasted malts. Very nice mouthfeel with a medium body. Slightly warming on the way down. Very sweet malt flavor with just the right balance of hops behind it. Caramel flavor really comes through on this beer with just a hint of smokiness lingering in the background. Overall this is a wonderful drinking beer. Very well balanced.

12oz single, Riley's, $1.79 i believe

i have had this a few times, surprised i never rated it

appearance: pours a cola-mahogany that is clearly ruby tinted when held to the light, a light khaki head forms but dissipates rather quickly...served from a chalice as a nightcap after some great tournament games

smell: sweet and malty, roasty aromas, sugary sweet, thick caramel, toasted grain, traces of biscuit, light smoke, touch of smooth chocolate

taste: easily the least hopped out 3F beer i have sampled. even though you wouldnt expect a hop monster for a scotch ale, it certainly isnt something to put paste 3F....taste is primarily caramel driven, very smooth, gummy...a certain roastiness is present throughout, light grassy hops, loads of toffee, touch of smoke, minimal alcohol...good but not lake louie

mouthfeel: smooth, creamy, gummy

drinkability: very drinkable
