AleSmith Wee Heavy
Manufacturer: AleSmith Brewing Company
ABV: 10.0%
In the style of a classic Scottish wee heavy, this fine ale is remarkably smooth and malty with background flavors of chocolate and molasses. Warmth is provided by a substantial 9% alcohol by volume. The high alcohol and fresh ingredients allow this ale to age well over time. Appearance: Deep mahogany color, sparkling clarity, and excellent head formation and retention when properly served. Flavor: Deep caramelly malty flavor with just a hint of smoke in the finish. Aroma: The aroma is sweet and voluptuous, reflecting the flavor with malt, hop and yeast characteristics.

Great Divide Claymore Scotch Ale
Manufacturer: Great Divide
ABV: 7.7%
Burnt caramel, up front, with a developing brown bread character that adds a bit of peaty earthiness by mid-palate; after the swallow, the caramel is subsumed by the smoky, peaty character

Innus & Gunn Oak Aged
Manufacturer: Innus & Gunn
ABV: 6.6%
Tastes like it smells, with toffee dominating up front and no real development until the swallow, when a slight hop presence kicks in to balance the sweetness; there clearly is diacetyl in the mix but it goes perfectly with this style; overall, the experience will remind you of a low key whisky, without the burn

Innus & Gunn Rum Cask
Manufacturer: Innus & Gunn
ABV: 7.4%
Pours a clear dark ruby red, almost a cherrywood colour, decent thick off white head forms, drops some nice lacing on the glass, settles to a thick ring and decent layer. Smell is neat, vanilla, oak, citrus, a bit of spice, caramel, sugarcane, light sourness, quite fruity, almost a pineapple thing going on, neat. Taste is pretty good, kind of light, oaky sourness, vanilla and caramel, rum and bananas, brown sugar, raisin, some fruit, buttery, not bad. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation, buttery smooth stuff

Old Chub
Manufacturer: Oskar Blues
ABV: 8.0%
This jaw-dropping Scottish strong ale (8% ABV) is brewed with bodacious amounts of malted barley and specialty grains, and a dash of beechwood-smoked malt.

Scotty Karate

ABV: 9.75%
This beer is a big, full bodied Scottish ale. It is 9.75% alc. but it is very smooth and balanced.

Skull Splitter
Manufacturer: Orkney
ABV: 8.5%
Mahogany, brown with hints of amber. Smell of caramel and toffee with roasted malts. Taste of chewy dark taffy with hints of roasted malt and toffee. Lively carbonation that keeps the flavors dancing on the tongue.
