3.88/5 rDev +1%
A - dark brownish amber with a thick layer of dense, brownish, off white head that has decent retention
S - baked apples, peat, caramel
T - baked apples, caramel, some candy sugar, faint graininess, alcohol
M - medium to full bodied, well carbonated
This is a big bodied, full flavored Wee Heavy. The flavor is bold and balanced. The alcohol is present but tamed. My only disappointment was that there was a faint grainy note in the finish. Otherwise, this was a big, bold offering that is worth trying.

Poured into thistle glass. Slightly cloudy deep garnet with a small tan head. Smells of bourbon and alcohol, malt and sweetness. Taste is clean, sweet malt with a thick sweet boozy finish with crackery flavors hanging over. Delicious and dangerously drinkable.

4/5 rDev +4.2%
Pours medium brown with a decent head up front. No retention, limited carbonation.
Nice dark fruit, boozy toffee and caramel, toasted grain in the nose.
Over-browned bread crust, burnt sugar, bruised fruit, some buttery toffee, some fruit notes, booze, bitterness. Lots going on here. All good. Alcohol comes thru and helps to cut the sweetness.
Fuller bodied, mouth coating.
Nice version of the style. A bit of an overbalanced beer, but it is because all of the flavors are super-strong. Worthy.

4.15/5 rDev +8.1%
Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.
Appearance: deep, rich amber hue with tons of haze and two fingers of frothy tan foam. Just what I like to see.
Smell: rich malty aroma with lots of breadiness and plenty of fruity character on top. There is a hint of caramel and even some minor spiciness to round 'er out. Quite nice.
Taste: fruitier than the aroma, there is a lot of good raisin, date and cherry in here. It reminds me of an old ale or an English barleywine in some respects. There's plenty of bread and butterscotch in the flavor with the fruit. Really quite tasty.
Mouthfeel: tons of body with a great carbonation yield a highly satisfying creaminess. I love the effect here.
Overall: this is quite a wonderful beer. I wish it were more available in my area.
