COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Rando7 (750) - Iowa, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle pours dark brown/ruby with brief tan head. Aroma peat and malts. Taste sweet caramel malts with peat and light smoke. Palate thick and slightly syrupy but it worked well. Finish prolonged mild peat. Alcohol slightly apparent.

Nice scotch ale, good balance of malt and peat.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2012 Sampled on draft at D’s in Monroeville this beer poured a dark brown color with red highlights and a medium sized foamy tan head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was cherry, plum, sugar and prominent alcohol. The flavor was tangy and boozy with ripe dark fruits, sugar, more booze, banana, molasses and sherry. The finish was long tangy dark fruits and alcohol. Medium body. Exceptionally boozy but somehow with this one it worked. Interesting.

Caramel pour with a tan head that went away quickly. Aroma is smoked malt, dark fruits as is how it tsted. A nice balanced beer with no real dominance. Nice aftertaste.

BVery (6939) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Terrific brew! Pours a clear deep reddish-amber with a smaller white head - beautiful color. Nose is dark cherry, peat, and a touch of malt. Moderate palate. Very nice flavor profile that is rich dark fruit (cherry, raisin), smokey peat, earthy malts - complex yet smooth and easy drinking. Winner - this is great.

HonkeyBra (3516) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Deep rich mahogany pour with a tan medium head. Aroma of caramel, bread, nuts. Mild cold smoke and wood. Flavor of smoke, rich cherry, caramel and toffee. Smoke wood, liquid smoke, strong sweet malts. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Slight booziness towards the finish. If you’re looking for a Scotch Ale that is absolutely average in every way, sure, here it is. Me? I wasted the 45 minutes it took to drink this.

Daytonbeer (662) - Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Pours a dark reddish brown with moderate lacing. Aroma of bread and some carmel. Taste is complex, boubon, carmel, fruit, and alcohol. Alittle too syrupy, but still good.

Cybercat (3489) - Georgia, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Comes out of the tap a clear, ruddy mahogany, almost a raspberry color, with a thick, fine-bubbled and persistent light tan head. Strong aroma is mainly apple and pear with an undertone of cloves. Flavor fills the mouth with cloves, apple, pear and caramel, along with hints of cinnamon and horehound. Smooth, firm-bodied texture has a good amount of fizz and leaves a lively, spicy, fruity finish. I call this one more than "wee heavy"!
