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.

Bottle @ home, aged 3 years. Pours a dark copper liquid and a fantastic, large and creamy tan head, layered with beige foam below. Good Lacing. Fruity, sweet and vinous aroma with plums, sweet cherries, dates, caramel, toffee and a hint of chocolate. Big mouth feel and smooth texture and warming smooth alcohol. The Sweet taste is vinous with raisins, plums, caramel, dark sugar, spices. Lingering white chocolate, nuttiness and spices.

C’est un peu la westlveteren en mode écossaise. C’est riche, toffee, chocolat, cassonade. L’amertume équilibre bien et rend ce char d’assaud très buvable.

Big malt caramel toffee aroma. Dark red translucent pour. Nice head. Flavors of predominately dark fruit type of malt character. Some fruity esters but this one is all about the malt.

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 (4239) - 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.
