COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Scottish-inspired deep mahogany-colored ale showcases a rich, malty flavor profile of caramel and toffee offset by hints of roast and subtle smoke. The complex malty sweetness includes notes of dark fruit balanced by a subdued hop bitterness. Wee Heavy is incredibly nuanced and in a class of its own in terms of balance and sophistication. It ages very well and will keep improving for years to come.

fkoolen (808) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2016 75cl bottle at home, bottled 02/20/2014. Very dark brown colour, light brown head. Rich dried fruits like figs and raisins in the nose, bitter dark chocolate edge too: taste is likewise, caramel/toffee sweet, spicy, liquorice, maybe a bit smokey, lingers beautifully fruity and sweet but cant really appreciate the bitterness. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

blipp (7776) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Draft. Pours deep mahogany with a beige head. Sweet bready and candy malts, light toasted malts, and low bitterness, with very little (relatively) residual sweetness. Quite good; very clean and easy drinking for the high ABV.

Brewhemia (146) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2016
Dark nutty brown and very little of white head. Toffee, dates and raisins in the aroma. Very nice! The taste is very sweet. Tastes of dates and raisins and with a decent bitterness to balance. Really has all I love of this beer style.

tfontana (471) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2016
On tap at Mohawk Bend in snifter. Aroma is moderately strong caramel and roasted malts. Appearance is dark brown mahogany, ring of off-white head with nice lacing. Taste is dark fruits and caramel--covers alcohol well. Palate is medium bodied with average texture, average to lively carbonation, finish is long lightly sweet fruit. Overall, a classic representative of the style.

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 with Gus and I. Thanks! The pour is a dark dark ruby color with a light khaki colored head and a little bit of bubbly lace that falls to a collar. The aroma is sweet malt and caramel. There is a hint of booziness and a light metallic note that kind of deter this from being incredible. Chocolate and caramel really bring it back together on the back end. The flavor is also pretty good. That metallic tendency just exists, and the malts are very good. It's got a sweetness and a lovely caramel note. It's really good, aside from the light metallic. The mouth feel is a little watery with a nice carbonation and a sweet malty finish. It's complex and sweet, but the metallic just brings it down a peg. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with koleminer20 and Gus. Aroma is caramel, toffee, bread, sweet malt, just really good. Appearance is dark brown ruby, light light tan head. Taste is caramel, toffee, sweet malt, slight metallic, but other than that, everything I want in a Scotch Ale. Mouthfeel is medium body, soft carbonation, caramel aftertaste. Overall, this has been a wonderful journey from my very first scotch ale, a Founders Dirty Bastard. This is a beer I never thought Id try. And now that I have, Im very happy.
