Growler, courtesy of DYCSoccer17 (Manchester,CT location). Deep garnet pour with a small beige head. Sweet caramel toffee aroma. Some smokiness, and lots of malts. Fairly strong hop presence, still malty and toffee like. Some pipe tobacco. More hops than I like in my Scotch Ales, but a good beer, none the less. Thanks bro.

Manchester, CT locale. Sweet aroma with mild caramel hints. Really a small aroma that I would like to be more pronounced. Moderately hazy mahogany colot with a robust yellow/tan head. Sweet, sugary notes to start. Turns quite roasty and chocolately like a scotch ale should be towards the end. I find this quite enjoyable and representative of a good scotch ale. Needs more aroma.

NY location. This beer was sweet, but the body wasn't too heavy or thick with molasses. Brown sugar notes in both the flavor and aroma. Roasty and toasty. The resturant claims that it's "strong", but I don't really detect any alcohol presence or anything. Smooth finish.

Called Strong Scotch Ale at the New York location, I figured it was the same beer - actually much better than I was expecting - smoked malts and syrup sweetness, mostly - decent body, but thin finish - good, but not something you'll run back for another pint of.

The Wee Heavy tasted like a thick syrup. Itís for those of you who like thick malty beers. Iím not a malt person, Iím more for hops so this didnít do it for me, though it was pretty good.
