Une écossaise de caractère, voici comment nous pourrions définir cette Belhaven devenue un classique du genre. Liquoreuse, sirupeuse, riche, profonde, fruitée les adjectifs ne manquent pas, sorte de caramel liquide sur lequel s’étale un coulis de fruits confits rehaussé d’une pointe d’alcool chaleureuse. Sorte de Barley Wine moins corsé avec une grande quantité de sucre résiduel, cette Scotch Ale se révèle sous une robe brune aux reflets rouges surmontée d’une mousse crémeuse. Les parfums de la 90/~ Wee Heavy sont réconfortants sur le malt et les fruits secs auxquels s’ajoutent une savoureuse touche de fruits séchés : pruneaux, figues, dattes, raisins secs et le caramel. En bouche, le malt est magnifiquement mis en valeur, la texture tapisse le palais de saveurs fruitées... Une bière à siroter lentement pour en apprécier toutes les saveurs ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.33 l bottle from 'Hopt', best before November 2017. Very dark ruby with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, fruity, a bit vinous aroma of molasses, raisins, prunes and some port. Fairly sweet, malty, slightly bitter, fruity and slightly vinous taste of molasses, raisins, prunes, Glühwein and some port, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, slightly warming, vinous finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Tasty sipper, a bit one-dimensional though.

I'm starting to enjoy this brewery very much. Clean taste, kind of higher rate of I&G. Strong barley wine taste or malt liquor, sweet side of beer. I like these a lot.

Nekako prebogato. Od prvog trenutka i otvaranja boce znaš da ispred sebe imaš pravi delikates. Nisam ni krenuo sipati a iz flaše su krenuli opojni mirisi nekakvih slatkiša i karamela. U čaši sve izgleda još bolje. Bistro pivo sa nešto malo pjene. Baš ono praznično, aristokratski. Međutim... kao kad jedeš prejake baklave. Tako ni ovo pivo nije pivo nego kao neki pivski napitak sa brdom šećera od koga ti se vrti u glavi. Ja inače ne volim te prebogate kolače a ovo pivo vuče baš na tu stranu. Žestoko. Prežestoko. Jedva sam popio ali topla preporuka.

Belhaven 90 Wee Heavy. Botella en 99Cervezas. Vierte en un bonito color ámbar-castaño-caramelo bastante transparente, con abundante formación de espuma color canela de persistencia media y burbuja pequeña. Buena carbonatación. De intensidad media en nariz, da notas de ciruelas secas, agua de colonia (notas florales), melaza y mucho azucar quemado. Complejidad media-baja pero conjunto muy agradable. De entre los gustos básicos predomina el dulce, como de azúcar caramelizado pero sin llegar a resultar dulzón. Se acompaña de un amargo que equilibra muy bien el dulce. Es un amargo que parece provenir más del torrefacto que del lúpulo, como el que da el azúcar demasiado quemado. En el postgusto vienen notas de flan, aunque quizá estoy pensando más en el caramelo que lo recubre. Gran cuerpo y textura untuosa y aterciopelada. Carácter cálido. Persistencia media-alta y final dulce. El azúcar quemado es la estrella (sobre todo en boca) en esta cerveza de trago corto, más bien dulce, ideal para sobremesa o como copa. Maridará perfectamente con carnes con salsas "dulces" (como el confit de pato o de cordero), costillas con salsa barbacoa, o bien con postres como el flan o la crema quemada.

Bottle from Bargain Booze as part of Belhaven box set, thanks to my step-dad. Pours clear dark amber with a thin tan head. Aromas of caramel, marzipan, dark sweet sherry. Taste is sweet, fruit cake, caramel, light spice. Rich but not cloying. Surprisingly good.

fidemaster (336) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2017
Nearly perfect! Pours a beautiful mahogany brown with an incredible white foam head. Smells of caramel, chocolate, nougat, cream, baking biscuits and smoke. Starts off with a sweet, chocolate, cream, caramel, taste. Next you get a hint of alcohol, smokiness, biscuits, bread. Finishes creamy, and sweet. Has a great mouthful. Just an incredible beer!

BrewWhatIWant (323) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2017
Pours ruby with a small tan head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Taste is quite sweet and just a little bitter to balance it. There are notes of caramel, apples, raisin, walnuts and a little spice. Light-medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. It’s a rich full flavoured beer that is quite sweet but never cloying. Delicious and refreshing. I really enjoyed this.

From 0.33 l bottle, bought in Banja Luka, BiH. Pours amber red, with thin brownish head, good lacing. Well-carbonated. Aroma of smoked malt, coffee, toffee and a bit of nuts. Sweet, with a medium body. Nice Scottish ale.
