Rich and back-to-dark-purple in the glass. Aromas of raisins, dates, grape musts, syrup, pine. Full and even lush on the palate, with a long finish. Brings the saltiness out of cheese. Currants, raisins, figs, and totally delicious.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours dark mahogny, dark brown with a two finger, beige head that leaves a lot of lacing.
Nose: A sweet nose of caramel malt, brown sugar, toffee and molasses. Dark fruit, raisin, plum, vanilla, oak and honey.
Taste: Soft, smooth taste of caramel malt, vanilla, candied sugar, honey, molasses, prune, raisin, tobacco and wood. So beatiful!
Mouth: Very smooth, full body with a great texture! Soft, creamy and almoust perfect carbonation! The beer fills my mouth with pleasure and pure happiness! The ABV at 10% is very well hidden and is only there to bring all the flavours to the beer.
This i so fantastic! I have found another favorite beer today. Alesmith (almoust) never dissapoints me despite my high expectations. Wee Heavy is another beer to add to this "must have" list!
Ok. I admit it - I’m a sucker for great Scotch Ale and this IS just that!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle, bottled 20/2/2014. Pours dark maple brown with a reddish hint. low dark beige head. Musty aroma, evolved and somewhat oxydized, caramel and toffee notes. Medium body, a bit greasy, and oxydised flavour is just not working for me.
