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.

Deep brown with a white head. Aroma is bananas and a little dark fruit. Flavor is sweet with some banana notes. Finish is a slightly smokey malt. Some very slight hops present underneath. Solid scotch ale, if a little sticky sweet.

Killer Scotch ale, tons of toffee, caramel, and sweet dark fruit notes mixed with hints of peat and smoke and a restrained but tangible bitterness on the back end. Slight boozy warmth adds a liquor-ish fade to the lovely malt cavalcade. Delicious.

On tap at The Mint in Bethlehem, PA. Dark brown color topped by a brief creamy tan head. Burnt caramel nose hints at smoke. Rick treacle malt flavor. Thick, chewy mouth feel. Notes of licorice, burnt sugar, port, prunes, dark dried fruit and brown bread. Quite decadent and worthy of slow, succulent sips. Wow!‼️

Tried on two occasions, 2 yo bottle from 750 ml from Svijet Piva and on tap at Brewdog Leeds. Pours black with nice lasting beige head. Candy, dried fruit, chocolate, black, tan head. Sweet. Warming. Seems that bottle lost a bit of aroma but gained complexity. Also draught version has more dark fruit and berries which is a great combination with chocolate, also making the beer more easy drinkable. Very good.

geolgau (457) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - OCT 15, 2017
Aroma is potent and big with figs and dates, scotch barrel, slightly smoky. There's alcohol heat and some dark fruit jam. Taste is heavy and alcoholic, with dark fruits, dried plums, scotch, oak, raisins and toffee. Full bodied, low on carbonation, alcoholic feel in a silky mouthfeel. Great, big, heavy.

Mnóstwo suszonych owoców, spieczonego ciasta, karmelu i toffi tak w smaku jak i w aromacie. Świetne piwo, wybitnie degustacyjne, a niby styl taki nudny ;)

Really full malty toffee - carame like profiled beer. Nice carbonation, a bit warming alocohol in the belly. Smoke really subtle in the finish. Cool beer. Tastes like a blend of Barley Wine with with rauch quadrupel.
