Bottle B&M, Hawick. Lovely looking beer, clear, deepish amber, good thick head, nice lacework. Big and full flavoured, sweetish malt to the fore, long lingering finish. Lovely beer!

Brown color with a reddish hue. Aroma contains very little but some nuttiness and dark fruit.. Flavor is rather sweet with a ton of caramel along with dark fruit, nutmeg, and chocolate. I really like this one.

Not as good as Skull Splitter, but a nice offering. Pours deep brown, with thin tan head. Aroma of malt and peat smoke. Some smokiness comes through in the flavor as well, combined with a toastiness to the malt. Pretty decent stuff.

ElDesmadre (2279) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Dried fruit, caramel/toffee, grappa. Sticky mouthfeel, sweet but balanced, additional notes of tobacco, roast and nuts in the flavour. A rich, malty beer.

TorbenJensen (792) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
Wee Heavy is a very typical Scottish ale with emphasis on the malt. It smells wonderful of candy and caramel. The taste varies over sweet malt with notes of honey. The hops are discreet and almost absent, but it is also because hops do not thrive in the highlands why the Scots often saves hops rather than import it to expensive prices. Wee Heavy is somewhat sweet beer, but on a real malt-based manner where the hops still would have simply put a damper on its other good impression. Caramel, honey and candy are the flavor-bearing ingredients, and one should therefore expect a sweet ale that leaves a slightly sticky sweetness in the finish.

Pours a reddish brown with a light tan head. Aroma is malty with a slight roasted note. Taste is similar with earthy hops and roasted malts supplying a bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DraftDodger (511) - - JUL 3, 2015
Copenhagen 3/7 2015. 33 cl bottle from Rema 1000. Pours clear reddish brown with off-white head. Subsides to 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma of fermented fruit and alcohol. Soft carbonation. Taste is sweet malts and dark fruits. Surprisingly watery compared to the aroma. Mostly boozy notes of alcohol in the aftertaste. A strong beer with some character. Not many hops around though.

This is an excellent ale. It is hopped a little above average, but the great thing about the beer is its wonderful malt taste. It is crisp and full bodied. While the alcohol content is 6.5 %, it has the body of a higher alcohol beer. An excellent beer.
