4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Wee Heavy Scotch Ale has a medium, cream-colored head, a red-brown appearance, and no lacing left behind. The aroma is rich- dark cherries, some wood, strong barley malt, sweet, brown bread crust, and raisin. Taste is of all those, with smoked wood, cherry skin, raisin, and brandy wine, with a slight bitter undertaste. Mouthfeel is pretty much heavy and slick, and Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Wee Heavy Scotch Ale finishes semi-wet, rich, chewy, and delicious to the hilt. Overall, this is outstanding. RJT

Deep amber pour with baby off-white head. Big, sweet malt on the nose. Baked cherry bread with prune jam spread. Subtle booze finish. A fitting stickiness. Will stow one for a later date.

A really good Wee Heavy. Very bready aromas and flavours. Rye and Raisin flavours. Malty. One of the better Leinenkugel offerings.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep amber with a thin off white head. Well carbonated. Aroma is slightly vegetable, but not unpleasant. Mouth feel is much fuller than most Scotch Ales. Very smooth, with no unpleasant alcohol bite that sometimes accompanies such a high APV. As expected, this 9.5% ale has a nice sweetness that balances nicely with the toasty maltiness.

Not a bad Wee Heavy. Pour is nice. A lovely, ruby tinged dark caramel color with nice light tan head. Nose is malty, sweet, and vinous. Flavor is initially too sweet, but with a little warming and further tasting the sweetness mellows a bit to let the malty flavors come through. Could be bigger on the palate with more depth of flavor to improve.

Decent but not something I would get overly excited about. In all fairness I’m not sure Scotch ales are my cup of tea

smells scotchy, and caramel. A little roast and dark fruit. almost a little banana bread? some sort of baked fruit bread.
woah. Fairly scotchy, malty, sweet/dark fuity. Mainy sweet and scotch. A little malt/alcohol burn at the end, but fairly smooth.

Pours dark brown with a bit lacing tan head. Aroma is of toffee, roasted malt, and molasses. Body is full with long lasting sweet taste. A bit of dark fruits and bread round out the palate and overall quite a refreshing beer
