4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is very interesting mix of smoke, woody, caramel, banana and strangely enough kind of like some maple smoked bacon. Poured a deep clear brown with a small tan head. Taste is a bit smoky up front and then you kind of get some toffee sweetness, some maple, molasses and then a slight bitter finish. Very smooth and easy to sip on. Feels full bodied and has a creamy texture. Really like.

Very very dark, almost black, but still had a hint of brown. I could smell a slight bit of scotch, but it definitely wasn’t too much, and still had the ale scent I expected. I was expecting the "scotch" to be stronger in the taste, and at 9.5% I definitely wasn’t expecting something quite so smooth. Nice mild vanilla aftertaste. I would definitely recommend this one!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle: pours a clear deep copper mahogany with a thin-lacing froth of tan head. Has a sweet toasty caramel malty nose with a touch of light fruits and mild peat. Starts with decent fullness and light carbonation with some toasted caramel sweetness and light fruity tartness before a drier earthy finish. Would be better without the tartness, but is still a good attempt at the style.

I really like this style. Had it at dinner at a sushi place. Its sweet and definitely has some weight on the palate.

Pretty enjoyable Wee Heavy. I loved the color, almost a deep ruby and the aroma was nice. I thought it was a little thin on palate but tasty. Bottle pour seemed to have low/no foam, but draught had a nice creamy foam head.

Poured a deep mahogony with a minimal head. Nose of strong malty goodness that followed in the beer itself. Alcohol to well hidden in this one though ;)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cola color with a medium head that fizzles out quickly.
The aroma is pungent and very malty, layers of chocolate, toffee, and roast with a little bit of smoke and plenty of alcohol.
The flavor is smokier than the aroma but the fruit character is pretty central here, red apple & cherry being the key players. The beer is sweet, with a good bit of toffee & the alcohol is very noticeable.
Sweet and boozy isn’t always my thing, maybe the mood just struck me right, but I very much enjoyed this.

I was surprised at how good this beer was. The place we went to did not know their beers. But this had a great malty taste and smooth finish.

Dark red and brown pour with an off white head. Malty, berry and smoky profile. Pretty good, but could use a little less smoke.

Reddish brown. Some malt some fruits. Opens up after letting it sit for a bit. First impression is that it isn't quite to the level I expected. Still it is pretty good...
