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.

Taster at Rogues Convention Center during the Alesmith Canadian Sales start event with Slack guys. Pours a hazy amber with a beige head. Aroma is very fruity, slightly boozy, some caramel. Similar taste with candied fruits. Very heavy! Quite boozy stuff too. Very good.

Heidbummer (735) - SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2017
Quite simply excellent. On draft, Brewdog Edinburgh. Darkest mahogony, persistent thin tan head. Massively complex aroma of tar, dark fruit, coffee, liquorice, oak, dates. All that and more on the taste. It’s smooth and delicious. Outstanding.

ANZUShophunter (495) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2017
From bottle (not unlike the one shown!) in tulip. Pours dark brown with sizeable beige head that faded fairly quickly. Malty aroma with peat and vanilla in the mix. Rich and tasty encompassing plum to molasses with vanilla featuring again in the finish. I’ve not had a Scotch ale in Scotland but this is the best version I’ve had.
