This Scottish-style wee heavy ale is deep ruby in color, full in body with a sweet, malty finish. A great beer for late Fall or early Winter. If it aint Scottish its...!

12 oz. bottle thanks to Willrunforbeer. Deep brown/ ruby appearance, thin lasting head. Aroma is layered raisins, toffee, and woody hints. Promising.

The flavor follows with the layered malt depth, follows the aroma. Good dark fruits and wood, hint of smoke. Body is medium with a creamy texture over the palate. This is proper for the style. Good stuff.

This one poured a lighter brown with an off white head. Aroma was of caramel, toast and grass. Falvor was similar, semi sweet and watery, malty with small hop balance.

Braudog (6557) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle. Muddy brown, thinly topped. Slightly malty aroma. But the big, sugary character is a bit of an initial shock. But this settles into a nicely rounded, fully malted beer, easy to drink yet meaty. Well done. (#5356, 12/9/2013)

Body is medium with a creamy carbonation and is slightly chewy. Ends with more caramel, smoky malt, light chocolate and soft cocoa.

Barley nose with caramel highlights, hints of peat and cranberries. Crystal clear copper, thick yellow head, fair retention. Peat and elderberry flavor, evident, but not in your face. Dried leaves are ever present. Boozy, but light to medium body. Wonderful choice for an autumn beer

ben4321 (6100) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12, Listed at 8% & 20 IBUs on the menu

Aroma: The nose is mostly caramel and toffee malts with a little bit of booze
Appearance: This one pours a clear caramel color with a foamy beige head and heavy lace
Flavor: It has the same malt profile as the nose, and it rather malty, a little sweet, and a hint boozy
Palate: The body is medium (leaning light), it has a little bit of heat, a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: Though this one was not an absolute winner, it did have some pretty solid components to it, and made for a solid Wee Heavy. I could certainly see drinking it again.

Rich deep caramel coloured body with a rich, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, toffee, caramel, nuts, earth and some light metal. Full-bodied; Strong very earthy malt flavours throughout with a lot of sweetness from nuts and caramel, but a ton of alcohol and malt presence and body. Aftertaste shows a touch of raisin, some grapes and figs, but the alcohol depth and hint of metal shows through. Overall, a rather pungent scotch with a very nice and full body, but perhaps showing a bit too much without regard for mellowness. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Trader Joes in Washington (West End), D.C. on 24-October-2014 for US$1,67 sampled at home in Washington on 01-December-2014.
