Our Wee Heavy-er Scotch Ale is based on our Wee Heavy Scotch Ale recipe, but with a little more-er alcohol. This traditional Scotch Lowland ale is one of our most popular brews. Some of you may remember the original Wee-Heavy from the days when North Carolina brewers could not brew beers containing more than 6% ABV. We would like to take a moment and thank the people of Pop-the-Cap for all their hard work. Gold Medal - 2002 World Beer Championships, Chicago

Draft at the brewery taproom during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear brown with a modest, mostly-white foam head. Very tasty stuff with a rich malt character, including notes of ripe fruits, dates. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Creamy texture. Sugary finish with mild warmth, bread, alcohol, more well-ripened fruits, dried fruits. Quite tasty and nicely executed for the style.

yngwie (16990) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2010
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a clear, amber body topped by a creamy, dense off-white to beige head leaving lacings. A light peaty smoke aroma gives a little sourish touch, theres herbal notes and some chocolate and roasted malts too. Its sweet in the mouth yet dry, full-bodied yet watery, all in a strange way. Theres raisins, dark sugar, some chocolate and a slight roasted flavor too. Sweet finish with some roasted malts. A strange beer, too sourish and a bit boring, but quite drinkable and decent. 100115

mcberko (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
650mL bottle, pours a dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma of light brown sugar, some slight whiskey malts, and caramel malts. Flavour is fairly light, with some slightly sweet caramel malts, some light whiskey malts, and some metallic notes. Fairly light-bodied for a scotch ale, with an inoffensive flavour profile. Decent stuff, but pretty weak.
