Fluffy fluffy. Floating above the clouds here with cold, winsome, comforting lacing. Cedar-y and vanilla nose with orange citrus and a touch of brioche. Waves a little wood about, with caramel apple subservient to its vanilla wafer and toffee toast, while these too offer restraint. Maple extract cookies in lemon tea, and an overall pear tartlet aspect that brings it arboreally north to its latitude. The tiniest drops of heather honey. At the risk of repeating myself; these are well balanced beers! — 4 years ago
Pugnacious head puffs it’s billowy chest. Egg white and and foamy, with a tea colored translucence. Wave top lacing. Orange blossom and mango with grapevine and toast smells leads to sweet barley malt and tangerine. The mango is strong in the mouth, but not sweet. Tons of lemon oil, lime peel, and sweet grapefruit from the hops come out, but still it shows restraint (literally the earmark of every beer style these folks make) and balance. It is fruity, but never steers far from the earthy realm of beer. Opening and closing within the canon, and doing so with an ingredient far from its shores. Great work! Great Scot! .

Dark brown and rusty. Smells oddly Flemish with pickled peaches and rye bread flipping into bear claw. Tastes of cream soda, and root beer, barrel notes of Saigon cinnamon, rye, brown sugar, raw chocolate, chocolate tea, and cedar that finishes sweeter and creamier with nougat-coffee. — 4 years ago

Blackest coffee color, no dome, no lacing. Slight gunflint, dark roast coffee, peppercorn, poppyseed, smoky papaya seed covered in sweet pulp, with baked plum aromas. Dark toast with steely-graphite, rosemary-coffee, espresso, coffee rye, camomile, dark toffee and pecan afterthought. The brilliant thing about this beer is its reluctance to lean on sweet elements, and its insistence on pulling complexity from simple elements. — 4 years ago
Fruit forward nose, dominated by blackberry pie aromas. Some cinnamon and vanilla mixed with dark fruits and some other enticing warm smells. Big, rich, and dense but smooth underneath is dryness. Lots of big flavors, but finishes easy enough. — 6 months ago
