COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Scottish-inspired deep mahogany-colored ale showcases a rich, malty flavor profile of caramel and toffee offset by hints of roast and subtle smoke. The complex malty sweetness includes notes of dark fruit balanced by a subdued hop bitterness. Wee Heavy is incredibly nuanced and in a class of its own in terms of balance and sophistication. It ages very well and will keep improving for years to come.

Zlotta (6587) - Hagen, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2019
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2019 0.75 l bottle from former 'Bierkompass', 2014 vintage, cellared for about four-and-a-half years. Clear, dark ruby with a thin, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, gently fruity aroma of caramel, molasses, raisins, prunes, dates and a touch of port. Fairly sweet, malty, slightly bitter, gently fruity taste of molasses, caramel, raisins, prunes, some gingerbread, a touch of vanilla and traces of port, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, minimally roasty, a little herbal-smoky and a bit warming finish. Medium to full body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Extremely well-balanced and moreish example of the style which held up so well over approximately five years. Would love to try the Bourbon BA version.

Crit (4469) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2019 Cloudy brown,tan head. Malt nose. Huge bodied malt profile, light alcohol heat. Seems more like a barleywine than a scotch ale.

minutemat (10166) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2019 75cl bottle @ monthly tasting, Chez Sophie, June 19. Aged by me for 4 years, and thankfully still holding up well. Pours hazed deep brown, frothy tan head. Aroma of caramel, moist fruitcake. Taste is deep flavoursome, smooth balanced caramel sweet malt, fruitcake with a bitter whisper. Lovely stuff.

BlackHaddock (11007) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2019 11th June 2019; Shrewsbury Beer Exchange meeting in Chez Sophie, cheers Mat for the 75cl bottle (Bottled in 2014). Beige head with lacing, dark brown body. Boozy chocolate brew with a light singed roastiness that gives a little bitterness late on. Glad I have eventually tried this famous brew.

herrklemann (1278) - Graz, AUSTRIA - JAN 10, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2019 Bottle, thanks G. Dark red body with a medium tan head. Marzipane, malts, berries, toffee, light ash. Medium sweetness, mineralic, tart-ish notes, nice. Creamy but slick body with natural carbonation. Nicely done, malty but also fruity with intense almond notes.

adster (1124) - HUNGARY - NOV 10, 2018
Telt mahagóni színe karamellás, dohányleveles, banános, aszalt gyümölcsös illatok visszafogott egyvelegét rejti, melyek egy füstös, fás színezetű, vajkaramellás, vadszószos, borókabogyós, vörös áfonyás, gyógynövényes jegyekből álló testben öltenek folyékony formát. Különösebben meghökkentő, kirobbanó jelleget nem áraszt, egyszerűen csak a típus egyik mintapéldányaként lép fel, amely önmagában nem nyújt katartikus élményt, nagyszerűsége a stabilitásában, a kikezdhetetlen karakterében, a remekül összeforrott komponensek játékában keresendő.

wojanex (2255) - warszawa, POLAND - OCT 29, 2018
Really heavy. Trzeba lubić ten styl. Piwo jak gruba pierzyna w przegrzanym pokoju, wyciska siódme poty. Utlenienie chyba zamierzone. Ja tego nie umiem pić.
