I tried this wee heavy on-tap at H'burg's Capital Ale House. It's one of Starr Hill's "all access" beers, part of a series they're doing this year. It packs quite a punch at 8.5% ABV, but remains very sweet and malty, with a touch of caramel and a smooth mouthfeel. I didn't detect too much hoppiness, but I've only tried a few other wee heavies, so it may have been more than usual. Either way, I enjoyed it so I brought home a growler. If you can find it on tap, I recommend it.

Nice lace, reddish brown body, clear.

Nose is kinda tangy, malt and a trace of hops.

Much more hops than belong in a wee heavy, kinda bitter and almost metallic. I remembered this being better when I sampled it, but this isn't holding up as well. It's been in the growler for a week now, so that could be to blame. Kinda roasty, nutty malt flavor, which is much more appropriate.

Coarse to start, smooths out into something kinda airy.

I can't dock this too hard because it's been in a growler for too long; response locally has been pretty positive.
