• Belhaven Scottish Ale (Scotland)

    See the Full BevX Featured Review & Beverage of the Week

    Brilliant chestnut/amber with a substantial, creamy white head. The aromatics are fresh and generous with notes of roasted nuts and grain, tea biscuits, and subtle brown baking spices with accents of British hops. The palate confirms the nose delivering a silky malt core with waves of toffee, toasted grains, and soft notes of honey. Medium-bodied with ideal balance thanks to a bright dose of acidity and earthy hop notes. 4.5 Stars

  • Traquair House Ale (Scotland)

    Dark mahogany color with a generous white head. Toasted grains, sweet malt, and toffee fill the nose. The palate echoes the nose as it seamlessly marries barley malt with semi-sweet caramel, roasted nuts, and hints of earth and brown spices. The finish lingers with rich but dry malt notes with a very delicate note of earthy hops. Dangerously sessionable. 4 Stars

  • Traquair Jacobite Ale (Scotland)

    Deep mahogany color with a rocky white head. The nose presents a complex and pleasing aromatic profile that offers as much spice and herbal-like hops notes as dense malted barley. The palate offers waves of malt and grain with accents of caramel, cocoa nibs, fruitcake, with star anise, cardamom, and a hint of clove. Ideally balanced, skillfully masking its considerable strength. Tremendous. 5 Stars

  • Harviestoun “Ola Dubh” Special Reserve 12 (Scotland)

    Black as night with little head. Firm dark roasted malt scents abound running toward coffee, roasted nuts, treacle, and fruitcake. The palate confirms the nose adding a soft, sweet whisky note with a faint anise and semi-sour bread note. Exceptionally balanced and complex. Far from a gimmick beer, rather being a noble and tasty effort. 4 Stars

  • Harviestoun “Ola Dubh” Special Reserve 16 (Scotland)

    Black as night with a modest tan head of foam. The nose is rich and malty with notes of dried fruits, mocha, a touch of smoke, toasted walnuts, chocolate, and sweet grains. The palate echoes the nose being rich and silky while not being too heavy offering complex, ever changing flavors. A wonderful night cap! null null null 5 Stars

  • Harviestoun “Ola Dubh” Special Reserve 30 (Scotland)

    Black as night with a modest tan head of foam. Very rich and malty on the nose with generous aromatic notes of dried fruit, chocolate, and vanilla. The palate confirms the nose adding a distinctive whisky note that is much more pronounced than the 12 and 16, becoming a lovely scotch ale/scotch whisky hybrid. 5 Stars
