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

By far, my favorite beer brewed in Asheville that I’ve tried. Very smooth 7 percenter. Nice malty taste, a little hint of sweetness, but not overpowering.

Good stuff. The aroma is rich in coffee, roast malt, and a sweetness akin to toffee. The beer is dark brown with almost no head. The taste is toffee, roast malt, and bitter with an almost aged quality. The body is medium plus with a distinct smoothness with noticeable alcohol notes.

Comes out of the tap a reddish, barely translucent dark chocolate brown with a decent wheat head. Aroma has roast malt, molasses and clove notes with a hint of horehound. Flavor has malty, earthy, caramel, cloves and horehound notes of varying strengths. Firm, heavy texture has plenty of fizz. Wee heavier, way more enjoyable.

Rich and malty with chocolate notes framed with caramel sweetness. Dispensed with nitrogen from the taps of Jack-in-the-Wood Pub in Asheville.

One of my faves. Bought a Growler at Greenlife on Merrimon Ave. in Asheville. Tastes fresh and wonderful. Great lacing and the flavor is bold and palate filling yet not over powerful. Wonderful roasted sugar cane and malty flavors.

WOW, I was suprised. Another great scotch ale from NC. pours a deep brown color with a small tan head. You are hit with a wonderful aroma of sweetness and maltyness. Flavor is all the same. Such a wonderful brew.

22oz bomber brought back from Asheville. Just about opaque burgundy-brown. Thinnish soapy head. Smooth, sweet aroma. Pretty much nails the style, this is as good as most authentic versions, if not better. Really not so overbearing for the ABV, quite mellow and sessionable actually. Doughy brown sugar notes. Sweet, but not overly thick or sticky. A great malt-centered beer, worth seeking out.
