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

The aroma was a nice malt with a slight diacetyl. Nice amber brown color with great head retention. The flavor was malty, slightly smokey with a nice mild buttery flavor. Nice med body, a very good wee heavy that I will be drinking again. The nice thing with this version is that I can enjoy a few more since the alcohol is not too high for a wee heavy.

Nothing to notible in the aroma. The flavor is a nice blend of caramel, coffee, and a mild leather. This is much more drinkable then most wee heavys that I have had.

Wow was this good. Copper colour nice frothy head that discipates kind of quickly but leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. Good amounts of caramel but still kind of sweet and (rusty?). Very pleasent to drink with a somewhat bitter finish. Easily drinkable.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2003
Deep red/brown colour with a thick but diminishing off-white creamy head. Caramel, toffee, and slight alcohol aroma. Caramel and buttery flavour with a dry, tangy, astringent bitter finish. Medium bodied dry mouthfeel.

Little smoked and caramel aroma. Dark brown color, small light brown head, fair lace. Sweet, full malts, bitter under tone, well balanced, firm body.

earthy. I like the look of it, I like the feel of it. the malt/hops balance is definitely more on the malt side, though not unbalanced with notes of licorice and earth. good stuff.

Beautiful clear ruby body with a very nice tan head. Aroma is very creamy butterscotch with notes of chocolate chip cookie dough (how's that for a technical term?). What awesome flavors, butterscotch and caramel. Body is medium and very smooth. A very fein brew indeed. This would be heavenly pulled out of a firkin on a cold rainy Scottish evening.

A lovely traditional scottish ale. Very smooth with a buttery and caramel aftertaste. A wonderful ale for the Fall.
