A rich amber/copper colour when poured and a clean toffee nose greets you. There is a sparse amount of hop aroma and taste but this is compensated by the warming nature of a beer of this ABV. Caramel flavour overtones and a hint of woodiness makes this a fine beer. I nearly fell over when I was asked to pay $12 for it though!

paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle. Pours a rust colour with a nice sized white head. Smoky aroma with some hints of sweetness. Overwhelming smokey flavour that made my mouth taste like an old shoe. As bad as it tastes it was fairly smooth, not a lot of bite.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 3, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 A very smooth drinking beer with a medium-full and and velvety mouthfeel. Good balance of sweetness & bitter. Caramel, dark chocolate, licorice sweetness balanced with a smoky raisin mix. Nice flavorful finish witht the sweetness lingering somewhat.

aaronahb (2) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2005 does not count
From a 500ml bottle. Poured with a thin off white head. The beer is a nice rich dark brown caramel. A rich dark roasted malt aroma with a hint of coffee and chocolate. It has a nice creamy mouth feel. The overwhelming flavour is the dark malt but also a little smokey and maybe some caramel. A good beer for a cold evening.

Medium Head that dissipates slowly. Brownish red color. Medium Strong aroma. Scotch caramel sweet taste with a bit of smoke. A little bite but very smooth and nice.

3.5
Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Gorgeous dark brown color with a nice thick tan head. Very interesting smoke aroma with a hint of caramel and maybe a hint of cinnamon. Smoke is in the flavor is well which I really enjoy and this is nicely balanced out with molasses and caramel flavors. Solid beer from these guys.

mephisto (1301) - TAIWAN - AUG 19, 2005
dark brown w/ beige head. aroma of smoke and caramel w/ a hint of plum. smoke flavor, medium bodied. i thought wee heavy is designated for strong beers.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2005
500ml. bottle. Dark copper color with a medium sized creamy off white head. Malty aroma with some caramel and a hint of smoke. Smoky malt flavor. A bit on the thin side, but quite good.

3.3
jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Pours brown with tan head. Nose is very subtle and not very exciting. The flavor is very good. It begins with almost a barleywine flavor, strong medium caramel malt flavors with some apple overtones and some coffee. Ends with smoky peat moss and very little hops. Overall good

3.2
ales4ever (24) - gilbertsville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2005
I found this one to be too weak and flowery, then malty and dry. Too thin and too much hoppiness, not enough carmel-roasted malt! Still overall it was decent. I prefer their regular scots ale.
