Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/09/2018


Opaque, deep mahogany brown. Thick creamy tan head with good retention and thick lines of lacing.


Pungent fruity bready malt, caramel and light smokiness with chocolate and pine.


Full-bodied. Sweet caramel maltiness balances hop bitterness, dry pine and stewed tea-like tannins with appealing smokiness, chocolate, coffee and dried fruits.


Chocolate, coffee and caramel with good hop bitterness.


Rich but balanced with sweet caramel malt, appealing smoky note, chocolate, coffee and dried fruits. It might not be from Scotland but it's a fair representation of a wee heavy.
