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.

fidelis83 (2196) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Slightly hazy chestnut pour with a 2 finger, soapy, tan head that has great retention and leaves respectable lacing. Thick layers of malt in the aroma, lots of caramel and nutty notes, wood, a touch of smoke, some toffee, dried tree and dark fruit, a hint of chocolate, herbal and light pine hops, and dates. The flavor is similarly complex and rich, lots of caramel and toffee right away, dark fruit, brandy, sweet bread spice dried fruit, chocolate, sweet earthy tubors, light roast, smoke, nice woody notes, roasted nuts, light pine and herbal hops, dark toast, licorice and sweet tobacco. Heavy body, light carbonation, creamy, slightly syrupy feel until the slightly more dry finish with a good wallop of (pleasant) boozy warmth. Fantastic beer, I was in the mood for a winter warmer, and this fits that very well.
