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.

Pint 9 shared poured a translucent dark brown color with tan head and kind of a slick lacing. The nose is huge sweet malts blended with toffee and dark fruits and what I perceived to be hints of dark chocolate. The flavor is incredible the alcohol burn through the nose with the dark fruits and toffee and sweet malts, this is blended so nice. Mild bitterness on the back end, this beer rocks its amazing.

BeerBunker (962) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours deep burgundy with a big foamy off white head. Aroma is of pine, hops, alcohol, and smoke. Taste is of pine, smoke, caramel, sugar, and very slight hops. Lingering taste of sugary tobacco. After a few sips, a fair amount of oak starts to come through. Has a nice warming booze bite. Mouthfeel is creamy and decently carbonated. Tasty, boozy, and easy to drink. Very good.
