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

This was poured into a thistle glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy dark amber to brown color with a slim finger’s worth of foamy white head. Light lacing sticks and then slides. The smell had a nice blend of sweet and roasty English malts with a decent subdued caramel malts. A light meaty to somewhat peaty sweetness invades nicely. The taste was mainly the same - sweet meaty to peaty awesomeness rolling over my tongue in the flavor department. There’s a light sweet meaty aftertaste leading to a sweet wet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and decent for the style. Actually, a super nice sweet smoothness rolls over my tongue. Overall, this is good as a Wee Heavy/Scotch Ale. I dig this. I’d have it again.

Very round taste with the scotch ale typical caramel. Very fine pearl carbonation with hints of dried fruits. Nicely balanced.

Unde (541) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Clear copper coloured beer with smallish head on top. Aroma has dried fruits and roasted aromas. A bit mild aroma. Taste is a whole lot better. There is chocolate, roasted flavours, caramel and syrup with some dried fruits. Body is medium and the carbonation is quite high.

Bouteile de 33cl - Titre à 7,4%. Couleur marron rougeoyant, assez peu de mousse mais conserve une petite collerette. De jolis arômes de caramel, un peu de fruits trop mûrs, compensé par des notes de fruits à coques. Carbonnation moyenne. Trouvée à Auchan - Noyelles Godault.

DarkSong (330) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2014
It pours a dark brownish red with a medium sized, quickly fading off white head. It has a skunky aroma and the aroma of malt and a little smoke. This beer is wonderful. I taste a lot of malt, smoke, tea, toast and toffee. This is a great beer to sip slowly on a cold night.
