Toffee malty aroma. No hops on the nose. Appearance is a deep amber with a long lasting white head. Crystal clear. Flavor is heavy on kettle caramelized toffee notes. No hop flavor or esters. Mouthfeel is smooth and full with medium a carbonation. Overall, a classic wee heavy, but the malt flavor is one dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Draft. Pours brown with a beige head. Sweet malty base, some molasses, faint roasted malts, dark fruits, and mild bitterness. Pretty good.

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.

"bigger than the 6.5% implies...this one IS a scottish classic. perfect fit to the style. I like 7-9% scotch ales, but this one is pretty stinkin’ good!"

The beer is rather good, but the aroma is lacking and the bitterness is too intense, won’t buy it again

500ml bottle poured in a Chimay chalice. That’s that first time that I taste a Wee Heavy Ale, very good surprise in all the aspects. A: Pours a just wonderful dark reddish-amber color. Clear and impressive. The head is medium with not much retention. Some lacings are left around S: Very whiskey. Caramel malts. Wood. Sweet and toffee. T: Taste is pretty much like the nose. Strong taste of whiskey and caramel malts. M: Medium body. Molasses. Medium carbonation. Light sweet and nice bitter aftertaste O: Delicious and classic "British" Ale. Strongly recommended [ BA Review @ 11/14/2009 ]
