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.

On tap at Alesmith brewpub. Dark copper brown with a ring of head. Sweet caramel aroma. Heavy sweet booze with lots of sweet bite! Hoo! This one aint light. Im not a big scotch ale wee heavy guy. Similar to Old Chub its strong, heavy and sweet. Really nice just not my style. Too bold and boozy for me.

fkoolen (829) - 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 can’t really appreciate the bitterness. Full bodied, sticky mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

blipp (7863) - 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 (151) - 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.
