A Scottish style Wee Heavy. Tons of barley, very little hops, an extended boil, showcase big malt flavors in this winter warmer.

At Forest & Main last weekend. Somewhat dark. The nose has some caramel and bread plus faint roast. Flavor is a bit sweet with some caramel. Note quite as caramelized or integrated as some of the better scotch ales, but a good beer.

On tap at F&M. Poured reddish with thick dense off-white head. Big malty nose. As described, this is all about the malt so I was warned. I like a maltier brew and this is huge on the malt profile. Alcohol is present. Reminded me of a old-school English barley wine but with minimal balance from hops, it’s too far to the malt side. A little tweaks and some hops and this would be a perfect winter warmer in my book.

Dark black body, thin tan head, spotty lacing left befind. Nose shows light peaty malts, baker’s chocolate and some roast--all in a rather delicate balance. Flavor shows more dynamics and intensity with increasing caramel presence. Medium to full bodied, gentle but appropriate carbonation, lightly earthy finish is nice. A decent beer, but not my favorite of styles.
