COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filling the senses with a fragrant malt aroma, Big Eddy Wee Heavy Scotch Ale features a variety of robust malts that create rich flavor and texture. Hand-selected malts include Pale, Honey, Caracrystal® Wheat, Roasted, Victory®, and Cherrywood Smoked. Like its predecessor, Russian Imperial Stout, Big Eddy Wee Heavy Scotch Ale ages and travels well.

Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Wee Heavy Scotch Ale, a dense, mahogany-colored brew, features a creamy tan foam. As it warms, the layers of malt flavors will melt together revealing the subtle undertones of fruit and biscuits. As the brew mellows, it reveals more of its plum, raisin, and dark cherry flavors.

Very very dark, almost black, but still had a hint of brown. I could smell a slight bit of scotch, but it definitely wasn’t too much, and still had the ale scent I expected. I was expecting the "scotch" to be stronger in the taste, and at 9.5% I definitely wasn’t expecting something quite so smooth. Nice mild vanilla aftertaste. I would definitely recommend this one!

12oz bottle: pours a clear deep copper mahogany with a thin-lacing froth of tan head. Has a sweet toasty caramel malty nose with a touch of light fruits and mild peat. Starts with decent fullness and light carbonation with some toasted caramel sweetness and light fruity tartness before a drier earthy finish. Would be better without the tartness, but is still a good attempt at the style.

I really like this style. Had it at dinner at a sushi place. Its sweet and definitely has some weight on the palate.

Pretty enjoyable Wee Heavy. I loved the color, almost a deep ruby and the aroma was nice. I thought it was a little thin on palate but tasty. Bottle pour seemed to have low/no foam, but draught had a nice creamy foam head.

Poured a deep mahogony with a minimal head. Nose of strong malty goodness that followed in the beer itself. Alcohol to well hidden in this one though ;)

Pours a cola color with a medium head that fizzles out quickly.

The aroma is pungent and very malty, layers of chocolate, toffee, and roast with a little bit of smoke and plenty of alcohol.

The flavor is smokier than the aroma but the fruit character is pretty central here, red apple & cherry being the key players. The beer is sweet, with a good bit of toffee & the alcohol is very noticeable.

Sweet and boozy isn’t always my thing, maybe the mood just struck me right, but I very much enjoyed this.

I was surprised at how good this beer was. The place we went to did not know their beers. But this had a great malty taste and smooth finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark red and brown pour with an off white head. Malty, berry and smoky profile. Pretty good, but could use a little less smoke.

Reddish brown. Some malt some fruits. Opens up after letting it sit for a bit. First impression is that it isn't quite to the level I expected. Still it is pretty good... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is malts and berries. The flavor is raspberries, medium sweetness and a malty and slightly alcoholic finish.
