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.

mcberko (14080) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
650mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a murky dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of somewhat smoky caramel malts, bourbon barrels, and wood. Flavour is very heavy and woody, full of smoked woody malts, bourbon barrels, loads of caramel, and some vanilla. Quite barrel-dominating, without being too overburdening. The sweetness is high, which cloys a bit after a while. Good stuff, but a little too sweet for me.

A sipper to be shared. Very rich in flavour, smoke and bourbon both there and integrated. A good woodiness. Satisfying.

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Hazy, dark caramel-colored ale with ruby highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma offers bourbon, vanilla, toasted coconut and caramel. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is a sweet, lush mélange of vanilla, coconut and caramel. A tad too sweet, but still a world class beer provided by the ever-generous MartinT!

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle shared by Tom, thanks! Pours a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains, light bourbon and a hint of toffee. Flavor has lots of sweet grains with a growing caramel and toffee note supported by bourbon.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Taste during RBSG, from a 22oz bottle. Orange amber color. Thin khaki head. Fine particles visible in the body. Decent bits of lace. Nice caramel, vanilla, butter scotch in the nose. Hint of smoke, light spice. Bigger body. Smooth, soft, kind of creamy lighter carbonation. Moderate to bigger sweet taste. Light bitter, more dry finish. Tasty BA scotch ale.
