Can from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy amber with a creamy/fizzy near beige head. Aroma of rich, sweet caramel. Med body. Flavor is malty, something like unbitter walnut, and very little hop. Good, arguably true to style, but nothing outrageous. Cries out for imperialization. I can taste that in my dreams. This is a good foundation.

Tallboy can shared at a tasting. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, toasted malt, mild vegetal notes. The taste is toffee, citrus, dark fruits. Medium bodied, mild lingering fruitiness.

Dogbrick (13520) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Sample from firkin at the 6th Annual Rogue Firkin Fest at Green Dragon. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a medium beige head that recedes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of earthy malt, caramel and fruit. Light to medium body with flavors of peaty malt, grain and caramel. The finish is malt with a short earthy aftertaste. Decent overall.

"Don’t agree with the low scores. I tend to gravitate more towards the wee heavy strength scotch ales. While I like the lower abv ones, they’re just not as good 9 times out of 10. While i can’t speak to Fearless’ Wee Heavy, i can say this was a solid and quite enjoyable brew that was better significantly than their IIPA. Caramel, toffee, light peat and slightly fruity. Smooth and drinkable, yet complex and pretty tasty."

16-oz can. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a dense and creamy tan disc of mousse on top. Mild brown-bread malt and gingerbread nose. Creamy medium body with subdued carb. Brown bread and gingerbread mid-palate. Mild finish. Pleasant, but a bit dull. More like the indifferently made browns that plagued that style for years.

Clear amber color/ ivory head. Mild spicy caramel, earthy hop aromas. medium body. Spicy sweet smoky caramel flavors with a smooth finish--not bad

Can:   Deep amber, hazy, moderate frothy light beige head, sparce lacing.   Malty nose, a little toasty, somewhat mealy, slight forest notes... like sweetened pine or something.   It actually kind of reminds me of sap on a pinecone.   Very interesting.   Tangy semi-sweet maltiness on the tongue.   Again with the pine tree and/or pinecone.   It actually lends itself well.   Not much in the way of peat or campfire.   Remains malty flavored on the finish, but its not overly heavy.   I like this one, a little different but also unique.   Finish is slightly nutty, with a little bit of cocoa.   Yeah, pretty tasty if you ask me!

reebtogi (6341) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
473ml can pours amber in color with a finger of off-white head that leaves only small hints of lacing. Aroma is caramel malts with pine and hints of smoke and earthy hops. Taste is caramel malt sweetness with the pine and slight smoke and an earthy hop bitterness. Medium body and light carbonation. A nice Scottish style ale, but the ABV is a little low for the style.
