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.

12 oz can. Very fresh.
Deep amber colored body with excellent clarity and a good head.
Sweet aroma features caramel and vanilla. The flavor follows. sweet but not cloying.

Medium carbonation with near medium body.

Overall: very drinkable. Should be an excellent dessert beer. Recommended.

Nice color. Caramel taste. Very smooth. The type of flavor I like in a beer, but no pizazz. No head. Nothing special but worth a try. Hint of that scotch barrel aged taste.

Crystal clear ruby brown with light carbonation. Small tan head quickly dissipates with no traces of lace. Not much going on for me on the nose. Some maltiness with hints of light caramel. Enjoyed the flavor. Caramel is definitely the major flavor but without being cloyingly sweet. No peatiness that I usually find in a Scottish Ale. Malts are not heavy but present. Salt but not like as heavy a dose as a gose. Fair hop crispness. No heat from alcohol. Sweetness increases on the palate late and as beer warms.
