ur Scotch Ale or "Wee Heavy," was included in this series to pay tribute to the hearty Scots who have enjoyed rich, full ales for centuries. This ale was traditionally made with malt dried in peat-fired ovens. This leaves a slightly smoky flavor adding to the malt character. "Wee Heavy" is made with fine Two Row barley and a portion of smoked malt, English hops, pure Moab water and Scottish yeast. It is aged in French oak and bottle conditioned. "Wee Heavy" is a brown-ruby rich color and has a sweet malt character. The Scotch Ale will pair with nachos, baked potato skins, smoked salmon salad or wrap, prime rib dinner and chicken and cheese enchiladas. Store upright and serve at 55 degrees F to room temperature. Use wide mouth glassware. Hand-crafted 100% pure ale. This full-bodied ale is bottled in limited amounts right here at the Moab Brewery. We brew and hand-bottle only 2000 bottles per year.

First of this style for me. It was quite good, recommended by the server. Mud red in color, crisp taste. Like a good Speyside.

Bottle. Mahogany beer with a big dark cream head. Dark fruit and caramel aroma. Caramel and dried fruit flavor. Medium bodied. Caramel and dried fruit lingers with light berry.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours a reddish brown with a light mocha head. Nose of ripe fruit. Full body. Flavor reminds me of a quad with a lot of fruit. Finishes with some sweetness and citrus and floral hops. Very nice.

bomber - Pours amber with a two finger head. It smells of smoked and caramel malt. The flavor is sweet with a pleasant smokiness, more smoke than most Scotch ales Iíve had, caramel, and maybe some dark fruit. Itís full bodied and very good.

Bomber from Hayduke that we had via facebook chat. A big beige head over a dark red brown beer. My bottle was opened quite cold. Minimal aroma. Flavor is full of caramel malts and dark fruit such as raisins. Ron pointed out some quad notes and they are indeed there. And it is becoming clear that this is not so much a Scotch Ale as it is a Quad. A tasty one, too.

Bottle: murky reddish brown with a tan steady head. Aroma of brown sugar, cinnamon, musty leather. Flavors of malts, and kind of a tangy zing. Watery finish with a weird film. Meh.

Bottle. Pours a very hazy brown color with an extremely thick light tan head on there. Nose is pretty complex, actually, and has some caramel, toast, and dark candied fruits in there. Taste has some sour fruit elements to it, and actually ends up feeling and tasting much more like a quad than a scotch ale. Really interesting...

Expensive as all hell 1 liter swing top, picked up at Moab, pours with a clear copper body that supports a weak off white head of foam. The aroma offers up caramel malts, thin fig notes and a bit of a peat like plastic sensation. The taste comes across better than the nose as the peat in the nose was cutting against the other notes. In the flavor I get sweet malts, some caramel like malts, prunes, figs and then the peat note bringing up the rear off in the background. The more I drink this the more I like it.
