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

Taster at the brewery (RBWG). Nice toffee presence. Some odd cereal grainy notes in the flavor, but some nice sweetness and peat overall. On another note, thanks to the welcoming staff who put out a meat and cheese plate for us!

Taster on tap at the brewery. Clear burnt orange color. Thin off-white head. Some ropes and dots of lace. Nice caramely malt notes, lightly spicy. Some toasty flavors. Some bitter, moderate sweet taste. Medium to bigger body, lightly slick. Smooth, lighter carbonation, kind of crisp. Solid scotch ale, but not outstanding for the style.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JAN 17, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 22oz. bottle. Mild aroma of toasty, dark caramel malt, some earthiness in the background and touches of dried fruit. Dark coppery-brown in color with a very slight, fading head. Flavor profile is malty, gently sweet, toasty and fruity, some mild earth present here as well, along with a moderate amount of hop bitterness, appearing early on and increasing throughout to the finish, some lingering carrot and dried apricot late. Fine but persistent, sharp effervescence on the palate, which is ultimately dry, and with a medium-full body. Interesting stuff.

BarleyandVine (56) - Stockbridge, Georgia, USA - JAN 8, 2014
Rich and malty with chocolate notes framed with caramel sweetness. Dispensed with nitrogen from the taps of Jack-in-the-Wood Pub in Asheville.
