previously 6.5% Belhaven Wee Heavy has a rich deep flavor. A beer to be sipped, savoured and fully respected.

Beautiful deep, copper red with a substantial, rocky, off-white head. The aroma is full of malt and lends itself to strong, overripe fruit. Raisin, plum, fig, caramel, toffee, chocolate, buttery nuts, slightly sour elements and a hint of hoppy goodness. The body is typical for th style, which means I would like a little more thickness and a fuller body, yet I try not to take away for my preferences. The flavors really show the dominance of the malt through out this beer. Strong, overripe fruits really dominate, though there is some caramel, chocolate and toffee coming through. Good, but not great, as a far as Wee Heavy’s go.

bb (8528) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Bottle. Dark caramel color with a thin head. Light aroma of caramel with a hint of floral hops. At first you get a thick mouthfeel, but in your mouth its a bit lighter. Very smooth. Caramel, brown sugar, roasted marshmellow flavors. finishes dry. Don’t think its as good as its overall rating suggests.

Holdwine (1169) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 5, 2004
A fine Scotch ale, although not equal to its buildup in these pages. Nice fruity front, ruby red in color, right amount of malt, slight chemical feel.

AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2004
bottled. Filtered dark ruby brown with a large but short lived head. Aroma is of caramel, toast and chocolaty malt, strangly reminded me of cola. Toasty, woody, smokey and choclatey with slight plummy and raisiny character. Spicy/pepperish dry roast bitterness. nicely complex with a reasnoble body.

Jayb0 (1156) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2004
Enjoyable scotch ale that shows caracter and restraint. Malty but not too sweet. Full bodied, thick in the mouth but not oily. A bit peaty, maybe a touch of iodine. Pleasant.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2004
50cL Bottle, 04/13.04 Reddish teakwood color beneath a massive brown head leaving a sheet of lace. Aromas of smoke, maple swamp, plum, caramel. Mouthfeel is thick, syrupy, velvet smooth and deliciously creamy--but there is an ever-so-slight dry astringency to the finish. The flavors are richly malty, cherry, plum, some earth (that must be the peat?), and a touch of bitterness. This beer makes me want to try more Scotch Ales.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2004
One finger off white head. Color was a dark amber/medium brown. Taste is slightly creamy with hints of malt, smoke and fruit. Finish was a little dirty, and left an odd aftertaste that was not good, but was not offensive either.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 5, 2004
Ruby bronze color with a tan head and light lacing. The aroma is very sweet with spices & sage along with a nice balance of hops and alcohol. The flavor is very unique and bites with a good bit of alcohol and creamy roastiness. Finishes with a nice brown sugar/molasses end.
