There isnít much nose but that is probably a good thing. It is definitely one of the better American brewed British styles that Iíve had in a can. As expected it is nicely malted. The hops are a little bright but again more "Scottish" than others Iíve had. That is it was nicely flat on the end. Itís also has whiskey overtones. The carbonation was a little too crisp but again, coming from a can as opposed to cask (for example) it is probably a necessity. Pairings are pretty simple. The carmel overtones match nicely with dark slow cooked meat or fried foods. You can probably get a little adventurous with cheese. Standard British styles are good but I think there are some younger cheese with strong noses that work. Also feel free to drink this with dessert as long as the fruit isnít too acidic. Figs come to mind but a very ripe peach would also work. Sweet biscuits, chocolate, cream or mint will all work great.

Can. Pours a hazy brownish color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has some bread and caramel to it, and seems just overly malty. Taste is a bit sweet and definitely bready. Way too malty for my palate.

Tallboy can shared at a tasting. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, toasted malt, mild vegetal notes. The taste is toffee, citrus, dark fruits. Medium bodied, mild lingering fruitiness.

"Donít agree with the low scores. I tend to gravitate more towards the wee heavy strength scotch ales. While I like the lower abv ones, theyíre just not as good 9 times out of 10. While i canít speak to Fearlessí Wee Heavy, i can say this was a solid and quite enjoyable brew that was better significantly than their IIPA. Caramel, toffee, light peat and slightly fruity. Smooth and drinkable, yet complex and pretty tasty."

473 ml can. Pours a dark amber with full head. Aromas of sweet malts and toffee. Flavors of cereal, nuts, toasted malts and a bit of cardboard. Odd flavor for the aroma and somewhat flat.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
16 oz can purchased and consumed in Oregon.
Poured deep amber; clear.
Feel: Medium body and carbonation.
Mildly bitter -- a bit high for style -- and gets to moderate in aftertaste.
No smoke but perhaps a faint touch of peat.
O: Light and hoppy for style. A very Americanized Scottish Ale.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can, 5.3% abv on can. Orange pour with medium clarity. Creamy low sitting whitish cap up top. Wide, thick bands of lace in the glass. Nose is mild with caramel and grains. Taste has caramel, raisin, some nut and grain/light toasted malt. Creamy texture, pleasant mouthfeel and flow. Overall an enjoyable ale, soft and mild, I could easily drink a few pints of this in the right setting.
