I like scotch ales and this one is very good. Solemn Oath tends to brew a lot of hoppy beers. It was nice to see they can do other styles and do them well.

22 ounce bottle into a tulip glass.

Pours a somewhat hazy, deep brown, with ruby highlights in the light. Small head, some loose lacing. Smell is malt, caramel, figs, dates, plums, some yeast. Great aroma. The taste is more malt- forward, then caramel, dates, raisins, plums. Smooth, solid body, appropriate level of carbonation.

Found it to be a pretty classic and straightforward example of the style. Very good flavor and balance. Well worth a purchase.

Very hot still, with some nice darker fruit flavors. Not the best Wee Heavy, but very serviceable.

An outstanding offering of a scotch ale by Solemn Oath. Nice chewy mouthfeel with warm caramel layers and a light nutty aftertaste. Well balanced, yet rich and complex. If you like Scotch ales you'll enjoy this one hands down
