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.

Clear dark brown body with a medium light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, toffee, dark fruit and some hoppiness. Taste is heavy sweet and light bitter. Full body, long finish, oily texture. Lovely.

Shared with Hrabren, Habek and Anja T.! Someone else? Perhaps. This was what I’d waited for most eagerly the entire day. Almost black body, off white head. Strong aroma, malty assault, raisins, vague caramel/chocolate. Light alcohol. Sweet strong taste too, raisins again, clean, full maltiness, not much bitterness. Not as complex as I would’ve preferred, but this is flawless. Not a 4.0+ beer for me, though I do respect it highly.

nearbeer (4058) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 13, 2015
750 ml. bottled February 11, 2014. Pour is deep chocolate brown with some red hues. Lasting film of creamy bubbles. Aroma is prune, caramel cola and booze. Tastes of prune, earthy leaf and wood, dark toffee, cocoa and cabernet. Medium-heavy body is slightly sticky but pretty drinkable. Low-medium carbonation is nice, but seems a bit hot with the abv for the style even after a year plus of bottle aging.

On tap at pizza port a while back. Fantastic malt scotch aroma. Not woody but defiantly scotch. Malt dominates, silky smooth some anise and does end with very slight oersted character. Perfect to style.

Barwa ciemna, brązowa. Piana Średnia, kremowa. Aromat palonego słodu, karmelowy i wyczuć można w nim orzechy. W smaku orzechowe, nuty palonych słodów, karmel. Bardzo treściwe, gęste - po nabraniu piwa do ust, sprawia wrażenie, że moża byłoby je gryźć. Wspaniałe.

Dark in color with a one finger tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel, bread, some hops and a hint of alcohol. Taste is roasted malt and sweet with the alcohol present. Not my type of beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
