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

L: pours a dark mahogany with ruby red highlights. A small beige head, some lacing. S: deep rich malt, slightly boozy, dark fruits coming through - plum, dates, fig. T: follows the nose but better. A rich malt flavour and deep fruit warmth. F: a sipper, nice full body, light prickly carbonation from front to back. O: great for the colder months. Cheap and in my local supermarket. A winner.

Pours dark, reddish brown, bit of beige head, not much of it though. Clear and looks sturdy. Aroma has some caramel, sweet malts and something metallic. Tastes sweet, even cloying, loads of caramel an I am getting some smoke as well. Total winter beer, filling me up and warming at the same time. I imagine this beer would taste nice after a long hike through Scottish highlands. Finishes bitter and pretty short. Overall, a bit too sweet and cloying for my taste but good at what it does.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4245) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 8, 2016
Picked up this Belhaven Wee Heavy 90 Scottish Ale 7.4% at Seiyu for just 245¥ and got to use my thistle glass. It pours a dark mahogany brown with a thick pillowy beige head. The aroma is richly malt forward featuring dried fruits: plums, figs, raisins as well as bready caramel buns. Full bodied with a prickly carbonation this is a substantial beer that typifies the phrase liquid lunch. The taste is sweet malts without being cloying. The same flavors you got in the nose dance along your tastebuds. If you want a beer that showcases malts beautifully for cheap this is fantastic value.

Nurmis (255) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2016
330ml bottle from alko. Pours dark brown without head. Aroma is toffee and caramel. You can taste the alcohol a little bit. Average to soft carbonation, really nice. Oily or creamy texture. Taste is heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter.

It pours dark brown with ruby highlights. It has a tan head that has tightly packed bubbles of carbonation. It has malty aromas highlighted by caramel, earthly elements, and some fruit. It has flavors of smoke, caramel, fruit, with some alcohol strength noticeable. It is a tad stronger in the feel than medium bodied with sweetness from fruit, warming from alcohol and moderate carbonation.

12 oz bottle poured. Pours a dark caramel brown with a thin fizz head. Grain forward aroma. Flavor is malty, metallic, and an odd fruit finish. Has a lingering sweetness to it. Cream body. Not bad, but less of my thing.

Særdeles spændernde øl. Købt som Belhaven 90. God smag, tilpas med sødme. Flot farve.

Kurze Review von Untappd: Like the label says: fruity, sweet and strong. Could be more mouthfilling, and the end is quite short! Still a solid beer.

Bottle from Seiyu. Fruity nose, with sourish and near-pungent prunes, cherries, and stone fruit. Dark reddish-brown color, tan head. Sweet and malty, light roast, and some caramel and butterscotch. Thin-medium body. Very good balance. This would be wonderful from the cask. Pretty good as it is. The flavors really push.
