Growler from brewery - Roasted, smoky malt switching over to bittersweet chocolate. Decent head and lace. Tasted more like a Porter to me. jb (3454) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Have heard of this one, sampled at brewery. Very very dark and very sweet. I didn’t notice the alcohol, but it is there. I didn’t notice much in the way of hops either. This is not may favorite of this type, so sweet. Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2007
Fresh at Alternative Brews. A decent scotch, apparently revived every year. Bit of alcool and caramel in the aroma. A generous white head with bubbles. Creamy, tasty, full mouthfeel and a little amount of lacing. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Sampled 11/04 - this is the 2003 brew, aged in oak for 1 year. Vanilla, sweetish nose. Oak is completely dominant. Rich vanilla/oak notes gives way to tart grapeskin, fruits, slight smoke/fishiness. Rich but.. the buttery heaviness is too much. I’d like to compare this oaked version to a fresh batch. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [draft - 2004 Autumn Festival of Ales - Honeoye Falls, NY] Cloudy bronze color with a creamy white head. Very sweet aroma of toffee mixed with smoke and malt. Very sweet and malty flavor with a sweet toffee finish and a touch of hops at the end. Very sweet aftertaste. Quite delicious.

Poured a deep mahogany color, beige color head. Aroma was heavy on the malt with a touch of smoke. Flavor was pretty sweet from malt with some caramel undertones and some, but not too many, hops in the end. Pretty full body. Pretty nice. lovibond (115) - New York, USA - JUN 15, 2001
Got Malt? CB could promote their Wee Heavy this way. The 1998-1999 was nicely maltier; the following year less so (but a little sweeter); but 2000-2001 is the vintage year (so far). Malty, with a color between copper and brown, bright with red highlights, and just enough sweetness and hops. Magnificent!
