On tap served in a mini nonic glass, 10 oz. serving

A-Dark amber, copper, quite nice. It seemed to glow. Very little off-white head with a golden hue.

S- Very malty, but very mellow. It just smelled like a 6-7% strength brown ale.

T- The taste was also not that of a beer in the 10% class. However, while drinking from the tiny glass, I could feel myself warming up and there was some harshness from the alcohol. This was more evident as it warmed. Still the alcohol was masked well from the earthy maltiness. This did seem more like a strong brown ale than a Wee Heavy to me.

M- Smooth, thick, chewy, moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel did give it away that this was a stronger beer.

O- Overall, I was a tad disappointed as I always wanted to try this and it seemed like this was one of there more popular beers as its been around since I can remember going to the brewery: at least six or seven years. Yet, it seemed whenever I went, it was either not on tap, or it was out. It was one of the better beers I have had from there, although I'm not sure I would order it again.
