3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a deep reddish/ brown, with a slight whisp of a head. An aroma of sweet fermenting fruit and vanilla filled my senses. Initial taste is a bit metallic, slowly giving way to a okay malt flavor. This beer seems to lack a decent body, a littel to thin. Overall a drinkable beer, not something I would seek out.
Bottle. Orange amber, golden head. Bready toffee aroma and flavour, a touch of orange peel, a bit boozy. DSG (15237) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2015
[3/3/15] Draught at Hales Ales Brewery & Pub in Seattle. Clear amber. Aroma of malt, caramel and toffee. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, toffee and a drier finish. Medium-bodied. stevoj (5592) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 22, 2015
I love the way this all comes together, some savory winter spices blending perfectly with the peaty character of the Scotch ale. Nice fluffy head on a cloudy dark copper body. Earthy, malty aroma. Taste brings more winter spice, which lingers afterward. All around a great winter warmer. Rossta (16) - Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2015
First sip was funky. Decided to let it open up and the flavors started to coincide with each other quite nicely. mcberko (19002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2015
On tap at Stateside, pours a hazy amber orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out caramel, brown sugar, and bready malt. Flavour is less sweet than expected, with notes of caramel, bready malt, and a fairly prominent spiciness in there that cuts down the sweetness. Balanced and drinkable, yet nothing overly provocative. Decent.

Bottle (12oz $1.80): Golden brown with 1-2 finger white head. This was different than other Wee Heavys I have had. Its sweet and bitter. medium plus body.. syrupy. beastiefan2k (4112) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - NOV 22, 2014
12oz bottle poured into Gordon’s thistle glass. Surprisingly there is some particles, floaties in this beer despite the clear bottom of the bottle. A dark amber-brown color. A glow o the beer with low clarity. A medium sized head that leaves a surface covering lacing. Aroma is slightly grassy with a slightly syrupy malt character. Its not hoppy, its not too sweet (yet there is a faint barley syrup candy aspect). In the flavor there is also a bit of toffee and slightly fruity. But this is pretty damn good for a six pack Scotch Ale. Medium body with an aftertaste of light fruit-syrup. fiulijn (21292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Draught at Hales Ales Brewery and Pubmaxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Cloudy dark amber color with creamy head. Light aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, quite round, with moderate residual sweetness; good Scottish malt flavor, lightly smokey, lean, lightly fruity; correct bitterness.
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown color with a smallish off-white head on it. Nose has a little bit of toast and nuts in there, with just a hint of some spices in there. Taste is also pretty spicy, with a hint of some sweetness up front. Meh. zoucrew102 (2116) - - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle from the Wine and Beer Haus, Seaside, OR. Caramel malt aroma with some hoppiness. Pours a deep caramel color with a thin beige head and very little lacing. Caramel malt flavor though a little watery. Finishes dry with some hops as well as some metallic flavors which is unfavorable. Ok scotch ale but the finish isn't good.
