Wee Heavy vieillie en futs de bourbon pour entre 4 a 8 mois. /// First we brew a Wee Heavy - a strong Scottish ale, rich in chewy malt character. Then we age it in American bourbon barrels until the bourbon, malt & oak flavours are in perfect balance - Och Aye! An excellent digestif, this beer goes great with dessert (or your favourite chair on a cool night), and will surely awaken your inner Braveheart.

The pour reveals a cloudy brown color with a thin light brown head. Nice aroma of bourbon, vanilla, caramel and baked raisins. Very good flavor of bourbon, vanilla, baked raisins and caramel, it’s complex and the sweetness is not overboard. The body is medium with a vinous texture and soft carbonation. Impressive.

Frothmeister (706) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
660ml bottle. Pours a clear copper with a very thin beige head. On the nose, the bourbon barrel is in the forefront, with butterscotch, buttery oak, and almost red licorice notes. Taste wise, WHOAH! Butterscotch, butterscotch, butterscotch with raisin, buttery oak, alcohol burn, and seriously, more butterscotch that heads into almond, buttery oak, vanilla, and a finish that has SOME bourbon, but a TONNE of Jameson Irish Whiskey-like notes. I love this. Pure gold.

Picked up a bottle while on vacation in Montreal. Agree with other folks here who say it's like dessert in a bottle. Pours dark amber, almost no head, light carbonation. I thought it had a bit of a sharp, alcohol-y smell, but upon first sip this quickly mellows to tastes of vanilla, caramel, chocolate, coffee, bourbon. Very yummy.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
660ml bottle. Rich mahogany in colour with a almost non exsistant head, very spotty lacing. The aroma is slightly alcoholic, vanilla, some coconut, woody. The flavour is warming, lots of bourbon, sweet, vanilla and woody notes. Warming mouthfeel, thin body, mild carbonation. Finishes long, warming and sweet. Its not bad but it does seem a bit thin. Quite warm and sweet at times.

deepeary (405) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2015
650 ml bottle. Clear dark brown-red with thin head. Nose is barrel, vanilla, bourbon, brown sugar, earthy moss. Taste is the same, mildly warming. Very well balanced I get just enough barrel and scotch ale maltiness. This is a satisfying sticky sipper that goes down too easily.

Franckg (986) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
Robe brune tirant vers le rougeâtre, léger col de mousse blanc qui disparaît tranquillement. Dentelle epaisse qui laisse la mousse se coller aux parois du verre. Arômes de bourbon, vanille, caramel salé, bois, toffee, alcool, canne à sucre. Un équilibre et une complexité à revendre. C’est doux, soyeux et la haute teneur en alcool ne semble pas vouloir se mettre à l’avant-plan. En bouche, encore là c’est superbe. Beaucoup de bourbon et vanille. Le caramel et toffee perçus au nez reviennent également en force. L’alcool se manifeste également mais s’agence bien avec les saveurs. Pointes de bois, un peu de malt rôti, cassonade, baies foncées, un peu de houblons amers. Texture sirupeuse, corps riche et assez lourd mais qui se laisse boire. Une carbonatation faible mais à point. Degustée à température cellier, elle est incroyable. Un classique que je n’avais pas revisité depuis longtemps. Une autre de ses qualités est qu’elle est disponible en tout temps.

Gluepot (372) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2015
A big rich scotch ale. Nose features malt , brown sugar and a hint of dark fruit. This is a well balanced, big, rich double scotch ale. The taste profile has a number of well balanced elements - dark caramel malt, toffee, vanilla, bourbon booziness and hints of oak, grain, molasses and dark ripe fruit. Under it all, there is enough hops (barely) and soft carbonation to keep this all real. Nice rich body aswell.

PtiBisc (29) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2015
This beer represent at 100% what a Quebec beer is suppose to be. Its light brown color with its caramel and distant banana smell makes it delightful. The taste of this beauty is beautifully balanced between caramel and the Bourbon of course. Cheers and enjoy!
