12 oz. bottle, poured into pint glass - 8.2%

A-medium brown; light brown head, maybe 1 finger height

S - malty sweetness, no alcohol

T - malty, a little bready, a hint of raisin or currant perhaps? once swallowed, a slight astringency with light sweetness and alcohol. Clean.

M-SMOOTH as a baby's bottom. Medium low carb. Did I mention SMOOTH? Wow.

O- very well balanced. not terribly complex, an easy drinker. I am shocked that you don't taste the heat from the alcohol. A good effort by one of NC's newest brewworks.

From a can at the Burning Can Festival (NC)
As expected, this wee heavy has a clear dark brown body with a good tan head.
Medium body and carbonation.
It's a solid if unexceptional (ignoring the NC origin), malt forward wee heavy with no detectable flaws. Lingering dark malt aftertaste. Mildly bitter.

Poured on-tap and served in a tulip, the beer is a crystal clear, caramel coloring, with a filmy, clingy, bright white head. Nose of roasted caramel, peat, thistle, toffee, and tangy cream. Very rich and sweet. Flavors are rich and sweet forward, heavy on caramel and toffee, with a creamy highlight. Sugary notes, too. Full bodied and slick, with a roasted sweet toffee and caramel aftertaste. Smooth, cloying, slightly slick finish. Good beer.

12 ounce can into snifter, canned on 7/28/2016. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, nuttiness, toasted biscuit, raisin, plum, fig, pear, apricot, and red apple; with light notes of roast, toffee, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. A bit too fruity/yeasty aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, nuttiness, toasted biscuit, raisin, plum, fig, pear, apricot, and red apple; with light notes of roast, toffee, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy hop bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, nuttiness, toasted biscuit, raisin, plum, fig, pear, apricot, red apple, light roast/toffee, herbal, grass, pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance; and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/silky/bready, and lightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Minimal warming alcohol for 8.2%. Overall this is a very nice scotch ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Rich malts, modest fruity yeast, and light earthy hop balance against sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. I am sure the age has improved it, even though I have never had it before.

This is the seasonal, pumpkin spice version of Brueprint's Scottish ale, served on draught. The color is a rich, reddish-brown with a thick, milk-white head and significant lacing which did not dissipate. The smell features pumpkin, nutmeg, malt, and toffee. The first taste sensation is sweet caramel, followed by pumpkin, spice, and a dry, hoppy, somewhat bitter finish. This is a medium-bodied, highly carbonated ale. While you really don't taste the alcohol, you notice the 8.2 ABV by the time you finish the pint. Overall, this is a nice seasonal take on a solid Scottish Ale. It is well-crafted and enjoyable. I look forward to tasting other beers brewed by Brueprint Brewing Company.
