COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wee Heavy vieillie en futs de bourbon pour entre 4 a 8 mois. /// First we brew a Wee Heavy - a strong Scottish ale, rich in chewy malt character. Then we age it in American bourbon barrels until the bourbon, malt & oak flavours are in perfect balance - Och Aye! An excellent digestif, this beer goes great with dessert (or your favourite chair on a cool night), and will surely awaken your inner Braveheart.

Tasting at SF, Vancouver
Brown color. Weird aroma, booze and caramel, flowery esters; a bit earthy. The mouthfeel is oily, it has some caramel flavor but no depth, moderate sweetness, some spicy touch, and some booze.
Messy.

mcberko (18956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
650mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a murky dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of somewhat smoky caramel malts, bourbon barrels, and wood. Flavour is very heavy and woody, full of smoked woody malts, bourbon barrels, loads of caramel, and some vanilla. Quite barrel-dominating, without being too overburdening. The sweetness is high, which cloys a bit after a while. Good stuff, but a little too sweet for me.

Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2017
Golden brown colour, without much head. There's some brown sugar on the nose, but there's a bit of toffee but also that bourbon comes through a bit as well. On the palate, I'd say the carbonation is a bit high, and there is a negative impact on the sugars...so this ends up being a bit thin and the bourbon character doesn't really flow. I should like this beer, but I don't.

Ferris (16499) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2017
Bottle - Caramel and banana. Deep copper with a small white head. Dark caramel, butterscotch and some oak. Light bitterness on the finish and much more butterscotch.

Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bomber shared by Kinz at the 20th Richmond Gathering. Pours a hazy copper color with not much of a head. Aroma of caramel, vanilla, wood and some green notes. The taste is toffee, caramel, big wood notes, booze, vanilla, Nilla wafers. Medium bodied, fairly hot.

crossovert (13909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
750ml corked and caged bottle. Brown pour, decent head. Bit of oxidaiton up front, very nice caramel and dark fruit flavors. Not bad.

3.6
slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Chestnut color. Malty boozy sweet aroma and flavor. A little one note - fruitybooze - but pleasant.

Sammy (12760) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
A sipper to be shared. Very rich in flavour, smoke and bourbon both there and integrated. A good woodiness. Satisfying.
