I'm not usually a big fan of the style, finding it too sweet, but this is a brew I enjoy, albeit in small doses.

Definitely taste some caramel and a bit of smoke. It's sort of like a really heavy Amber, with a high ABV.

Delivered to me at a bar in a mug with a tan head and dark brown. Taste is very roasted malt with a nice hop twang up front. Some black licorice and some brown sugar in middle. Chaulky and sweeter finish. This brew has a nice mouthfeel. It's a winner.

Pours a clear, brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel malt, slight smoke, slight yeast, hint of roasted malt, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of a Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong sweet malt, caramel malt, hint of roasted malt, smoke, hint of hops, and a hint of yeast. Overall, average appearance, good aroma, body, and blend. The smoke is the distinguishing feature.
