COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After quietly resting in the cellar for just over five months, it is finally time for our Willie Wee Heavy Scotch ale to be extracted from the Woodford Reserve barrels. The rich malt character reminiscent of cocoa, toffee, and brown sugar from the Belgian specialty malts has melded beautifully with the flavors and aromas of vanilla, caramel, toasted coconut and fine bourbon from the charred American oak barrels. Prolonged aging in these amazing barrels yields a finished product not only with a high level of complexity but also a smooth creamy mouthfeel which masks this ale’s rather substantial ABV.

Benzai (16681) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle [from trade with Iggywh, thanks!] @ home. Superb deep dark red color, full sized dense beige head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is very rich: malts, caramel, toasted malts, vanilla, brown candy sugar, whiskey / bourbon, lightly raisins, hints of chocolate and mocha. It tastes just as good: again an explosion of flavors yet somehow balanced and not just a messy mix up. Malts, caramel, brown sugar, raisins, wood, oak, toffee, whiskey / bourbon, vanilla, slightly leather, a slight hint of smoke, sweet. Full body, thick oily texture, suitable soft carbonation. Wonderful beer!

Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with a moderate frothy tan head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Medium to heavy toasted sweet malt, wood and earthy bourbon aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bourbon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. A smooth complex drinkable brew.

Sample at The Brass Tap during Cincinnati Beer Week. This beer pours a dark reddish-brown color with a medium thick beige head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, oak and fruit. Full-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, oaky vanilla, and bourbon. The finish is oaky with a boozy charred malt aftertaste. Enjoyable beer all around.

deyholla (12202) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2012
On tap at Revs production brewery grand opening. Pours a very hazy deep caramel brown with a creamy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of vanilla and caramel with a good amount of sweet grains and a barrel backing. Flavor has lots of vanilla with caramel and sweet grains and barrel in the finish.

hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2015
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours clear and mahogany with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The aroma features bourbon and caramel - what more do you need? Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. Loads of bourbon flavor here. Caramel and toffee too. So smooth. Not hot. Doesn’t burn. A miracle. I love it. World-class brew right here! Bottle graciously provided by of BBB63!

22 oz. bottle (draft at FoBAB also). Pours a nice reddish brown color with a small creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel and toffee, bourbon, vanilla, oak, cocoa, some dark fruity character, some cherry from the Woodford barrel, hints of smoke, fresh this was slightly boozy but aged a bit has smoothed things out, almost more like a barley wine at this point, I like this one.

DuffMan (10664) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 21, 2014
On tap @ the brewpub. Hazy deep orange-brown. Sweet rye and maple profile, smooth but very heavy on the whiskey. Nice but I’m glad I went for the $5 sample instead of the full pint! A bit too sweet and boozy for my tastes, but a nicely made brew.
