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.

Pedrens (160) - SPAIN - MAR 6, 2015
Botella de 75 entre 3. Color cahoba oscuro. Espuma beige de poca formación y muy poco persistente. Aromas a chocolate, alcohol, madera humo, moscatel, ciruela soasas caramelo, alcohol, salsa de soja, especias. En boca textura aceitosa, y carbonatacion fina, bastante viva para el estilo. Los sabores acordes a los aromas con notas mas alcoholicas. El final alcohólico, maltoso, salsa de soja, cola, especiada y madera. Largo y sutil. El alcohol se nota. Esperaba algo mas.

Dermi (733) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2015
75 cl bottled. Pours dark ruby rust with a pleasant beige head. Aroma: Hay, pleasant chocolate biscuits, hops, licorice. Some background alcohol, liquor. Malty, toffee, even bread notes. Taste: Sweet, malty flavours. Herbal hops. Raisins, canned plums? Lots of flavours. Nice. Some bitterness with sweetness, yet quite sweet overall with slight tones of alcohol. Herbal feel. Palate: Full body, some carbonation. Hints of berry sweetness in the end. Pleasant malty aftertaste with some traces of herbs such as licorice. Even strawberries. Overall: Not a particularly big fan of this style, but this most certainly offers a lot of taste and flavour, lacks a bit balance. Glad I tried it.

Pours opaque coffee brown with light tan head. Roast malt aroma has molasses overtone. Flavor has molasses, licorice and roast malt notes, a bit on the sweet side. Firm texture has OK fizz and leaves a chocolaty finish.

willisread (615) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 3, 2015
Draft at 2014 Yokohama Beer Fest. Nice deep mahogany color with a thin off-white head. Lots of prune, currant, fig, brown sugar, vanilla chocolate and malt on the nose. Taste is more of the same, with a little of the alcohol peeking out as it comes to room temperature. Really, really smooth...like a great brandy. Full bodied with a thick texture. Nice smooth long finish.

fraternie (893) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2015
Pruney and raisiny, with sweet, smoky maltiness permeating. Smooth on the palate but a bit fruit dominant, with subdued hops creeping in late and some heat showing through the finish. Aggressive.

coachd (269) - Missouri, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Scored a bottle a little over 1 year old at friar tuck Peoria. Aroma is malty and boozy with dark plum and fig. I am also getting some black cherry and caramelized sugar. Pours a dark reddish brown with a tiny tan head. Taste is malty and sweet with a tinge of oak and sourness. Complex, roasty and smoky for a scotch ale. It even has that hint of booze burn that I like in this style. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
