Arcadia Ales Loch Down
Arcadia Ales Loch Down is a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy, 8% ABV.
Nice looking pour, extremely dark red with a good off white head. I’m not in love with the aroma though, just a little caramel and that is about it except for an unfortunate metallic thing as well. The taste is a big improvement. Big and malt forward as it should be with notes of vanilla, caramel, cherries, raisins, candied nuts. This really has an excellent flavor profile which is blending together quite well, but sadly I’m getting that weird metallic thing a bit in the taste as well. I’d point out that this is maybe a touch thin in the mouth-feel department, but not a major flaw.
If this were a local beer where I live… yeah I could see having it around in during the Fall months.
