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.

bhensonb (10348) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 4, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours deep ruddy copper with a transient yellowish head. Aroma is lightly smoky roasted malt. Full bodied. Flavor is sweet malt with some mild spice. Maybe a touch of smoke. Or not. There’s a lot of malt - but I don’t find burnt or chocolate. More treacle. I think there’s some floral hop, but am not sure. It is very tasty in a heavy malty sort of way. I’m considering whether this is a smoke tinged barley wine thing. Whatever, it tastes good.
