Tap at Freetail. Copper to amber in color, clear, and has a decent beige colored head. The smell is sweet, cotton candy, little chlorine, celery, and burnt sugar. The taste is very sweet, burnt sugar, caramel, and fruits.

(Draught at Dallas Gingerman) Pours a decent looking dark red color, almost no head, and no lacing on the glass. Smell is a little molasses, toffee, roastiness, and some other unidentifiable sweet smell. Taste is way too bitter/burnt and the sweetness was there to "balance" it but it wasn’t balanced at all. It was really just gross. The roast was like burnt toast and I didn’t enjoy this one at all. I paid for it, but I drank only about 20% before the waitress took it away at my request. Carbonation was a little light, could use more creaminess, but overall solid.

Gingerman Fort Worth. Lighter than other Wee Heavies I’ve had. Less malty, sweet. Good, but not up to par.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2010 Pint from tap at Uncle Billy’s on May 27, 2009.  Dense head, see-through amber color... I had a feeling this was a wee heavy.  Serious malt aroma.  You can tell alot of sugars went into this bad boy.  This was a very well flavored recipe.  Very enjoyable to drink, and very easy going down.  Not harsh, over-sweet, sticky, or uncomfortably heavy.  In fact, I think my pint went down in a matter of minutes.  Not bad for such a malty beer.  Pretty darned good.  Good going, Real Ale!  Ingredients: I’d guess raisins, brown sugar, lots of malt (special roast maybe), and more hops than usual for a wee heavy.  I honestly had no idea the ABV was 9.  I would have guessed 8, maybe. Second review at Freetail Brewing Co. Funny... Looks totally different from the last pint I had. Must have been the lighting. This one looks dark amber and very cloudy/dense with a small head.  Not see through at all... Sweet and a little tart, with just the right amount of hops to balance the beer out.

Cavie (4775) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Clear ruby-orange with a light head. Sweet notes detected on the nose. Mouthfeel is slightly thicker than water but less creamy than the typical wee heavy. Taste is sweet with a bite. Caramel is very present and fits it well. Caramel dries out and lingers on the finish. Quite good, if diverging from the style.

ilovedarkbeer (2748) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Pours a reddish copper caramelized color with a small to medium sized off white soapy head. Nose is wood, earth, caramel, and a bit of smoke. Taste is caramel, grapes, grape seeds, and sweet brown sugar. Moderate mouthfeel, and lasting finish. Not bad.

Tejas (1007) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Big beer and sweet. A bit much for my taste but that’s just me. Usually scotch ales aren’t as strong. Despite the 9%, alcohol is hidden well. Smooth as it’s going down. A bit buttery.
