puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. The dirty bathroom aroma returns in this one, mixed with rubber and a little bit of sweetness. Mostly sweet, corny flavor, very uncomplex, light, boring. Thick but not boozy, surprising at 9.5%. Pretty standard brewpub fair.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2009
Deep dark brown beer. Fairly sweet malty aroma. Chewy and sweet and lightly treacly. Lots of toasted malt flavour and a hint of fruit. Sweet figgy/date sweetness. Full bodied, rich and pretty tasty.

blipp (8030) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Labeled as Wee Heavier. Pours near black with a thin beige head. Sweet malt aroma, just a touch of roast. The flavor is light but well balanced with sweet malt, roast, and a hint of smoke. Pretty good.

WeeHeavySD (3379) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Labeled as Nodding Head Wee Heavier, a bottle from the World Beer Cup, leftover from judging a gift form bill. Pours extremely dark almost black with a big 2 finger tan head. Nose is sweet and slightly malty. Taste is overly sweet, and very front ended in that regard, followed by a lingering viscous caramel. Not bad I have to say.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2007
Gen Lafayette strong ale fest 07. Pours a nice rich woody amber, mahagony highlights and a big frothy head. Aroma is nuts, fruity esters, almonds, some caramel malts, and earthy hops. Flavor was ok, but nothing too intense or malty sweet, just light caramel, earth, very light cold smoked salmon, and a lightly bitter finish. Ok mouthfeel and a decent clean finish.

Hand pump in tulip glass - Dark brown color with big tan head. Smoky-nut aroma with some sweet malts detectable. Taste was very malty and sweet, with a slight hint of alcohol. Finishes clean, yet bold. Nice brew!

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2005 Poured a dark, chestnut brown color with a small, tan head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, smoke, peat, and sweet caramel. More sweet caramel in the taste, some chocolate, smoke, and a strong alcohol presence.
