Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Building upon a Scottish "Wee Heavy", this unique beer was developed to provide a strong caramel malt flavour with enough salt to give it a bit of a bite. Stronger in alcohol, this beer starts off sweet but remains fairly light to drink.

A: Caramel colour with an off-white head, thin ring of retention shows a bit of leg.

S: Light caramel and toffee sweetness in the aroma, golden raisins, nice fruity esters (figs, pear).

T: Great caramel flavour, slight saltyness in the aftertaste, though I'm not sure I'd pick it out if I didn't know it was there. Pleasant fruitiness, hints of cocoa and nuts. Slight earthy mineral. Some good bitterness to back up the sweetness. Slight warmth from the alcohol, though I wouldn't have thought it was this strong.

M: Light residual sweetness with a slightly drying finish.

O: Really well put-together novelty ale... it's not something I'd drink a lot of, but I'd be really happy to see this every season.

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: The body is a hazy amber, the head is a cream cold. Head retention is okay -- left with a film and lots of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Very light lacing, and I mean VERY light.

Aroma: Sea salt, pretzels, roasted nuts, caramel.

Taste: Very sweet caramel up front, but the salt comes in with a punch, and it tastes excellent. Some booze in the finish, but otherwise a salty caramel pretzel kind of feel.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: This is so tasty. Could be a good dessert beer, but a bomber anytime is perfect. I love the salt and caramel, perfect amount of each.
