Our Wee Heavy-er Scotch Ale is based on our Wee Heavy Scotch Ale recipe, but with a little more-er alcohol. This traditional Scotch Lowland ale is one of our most popular brews. Some of you may remember the original Wee-Heavy from the days when North Carolina brewers could not brew beers containing more than 6% ABV. We would like to take a moment and thank the people of Pop-the-Cap for all their hard work. Gold Medal - 2002 World Beer Championships, Chicago

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Pours a dark and murky brown color with a small, foamy, off-white head. Soapy spots do their best to stick to the glass, but most fail. The aroma is more toasty than most Scotch ales, scorched caramel malts and dark biscuit showing where peat smoked malts normally would. Earthy, grassy hops lend bittering balance to the mix. Flavors continue, more darkly toasted caramel and biscuit coming through, along with those same earthy hops. Medium bodied, this one is slightly over-carbonated and underwhelming overall. Decent, but pretty boring on the whole.

22oz bottle. From a trade with TURDFERGUSON, thanks Sam. Poured a very nice dark copper, white head. Light roasty maltiness, very good aroma. Toasty flavor as well. Pretty good.

brownish amber under a small off-white head. toasty caramel aroma with some nuts. flavors of nuts and caramel. i don’t notice any peaty smoky notes. a bit over-carbonated. light-medium bodied. malty, toast, and sweet pretty much sums it up.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2008
I’ve had both bottle and draught, but I’m writing the rating from a bomber. Pours a dark orange brown with small off-white head. The aroma is sweet and nutty, with some chocolate and wood notes in there, too. Flavor is bitter chocolate, some lumber, raisin, and some planty bitterness. A little bit of alcohol comes out in the finish, but leaves a caramel aftertaste. Not too shabby.

Amber/brown pour with a two finger cream color head. Carmelly molasses and malt in the nose and the mouth. Solid medium body and good amount of hop character. Pretty clean finish. Their 2nd best beer I’ve had.

nearbeer (4164) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 7, 2008
650 ml. Translucent dark copper-brown with a two-finger head that hangs around a while. Aroma is earthy smoke and clay mixed with toffee. Flavor is dirty toffee and caramel with some oak, toasted nut, and smoky mint. Medium body is mostly smooth with some ripples of carbonation and tongue-tingle.

chandler0201 (649) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Poured a dark brown/black, with minimal white head. Aroma of smoked grains and some caramel and molasses. Flavor of brown sugar. Very dry finish is the only thing that hinders this.

Growler thanks BrianK. Pours a brown body with strong ruby hues. Carmel malt dominates this one with some hop character. Sweet and dry in the finish. eh.
