Filling the senses with a fragrant malt aroma, Big Eddy Wee Heavy Scotch Ale features a variety of robust malts that create rich flavor and texture. Hand-selected malts include Pale, Honey, Caracrystal® Wheat, Roasted, Victory®, and Cherrywood Smoked. Like its predecessor, Russian Imperial Stout, Big Eddy Wee Heavy Scotch Ale ages and travels well.

Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Wee Heavy Scotch Ale, a dense, mahogany-colored brew, features a creamy tan foam. As it warms, the layers of malt flavors will melt together revealing the subtle undertones of fruit and biscuits. As the brew mellows, it reveals more of its plum, raisin, and dark cherry flavors.

demitriustown (1184) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - APR 28, 2012
12 oz bottle: Aroma is malt forward, plums, alcohol, slight roasted and chocolate notes. A light herbal hop texture sneaks through in the background. Appearance is a very carbonated dark reddish hue with a thin tan head that lingers. Taste has got a nice full malty texture, nice complexity then finishes with a cough drop like note. Plates really carbonated on the tongue and finishes with the lingering medicinal note. Overall, Pretty good has some flaws, but not too many flaws that makes it horrid. Cheers!

tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2012
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and served to a Big Eddy logo-ed snifter with a ruby highlighted, deep mahogany color, moussy, cream/light tan head foam that gradually diminished to a thick ring & film, and left clingy dots & dashed of lacing on the glass. The aroma was substantial malt, caramel, dark fruit as prune, raisin, and cherry, a port-like nature, and some slight earthiness. The flavor added minimal hop bitterness, a syrupy texture, medium+ body, near cloying sweetness and some pleasantly warming alcohol. I would have preferred a little less sweetness, some elevated earthy peatiness, which is usually consistent with the style, and some dryness to the finish, but was basically satisfied with this brew as a decent sipper.

12 oz bottle. Clear cola brown with a creamy tan head. Nose is peat, toffee and faint grape. Silky body with a buzz ending sticky. Taste is quite sweet cherry and grape, peat adds a bitter note with lingering smoke. I got a fortified wine feel from this one.
