I tried this again recently after not having it for quite a few years and it just didn't seem to have the same "wow" affect that it did then. Still a good beer, but it seemed to be malt heavy this time. Hopefully it was just this particular brew. Still a pleasure though!

Rich malt aromas, fresh baked bread crust,
Brilliant dark chestnut, 2” off-white head with fine bubbles, dissipates to ¼”. Very lacy.
Palate: Rich British malt spice, a dark sugary malt flavor, no roast, whole wheat bread.
Chewy, creamy, medium low soft carbonation.

Nitrogen tap: A beautiful pour, clear, dark amber with a one finger, almost immortal, creamy, antique ivory head that left a sticky coating on the glass. The aroma is malty with a little alcohol and very light, spicy, English hops. The flavor is malty, rich and bready but not overly sweet, with the hops making their presence known without being overpowering. As for mouthfeel, creamy and rich with moderate carbonation tickling the tongue.

A fine example of a good Wee Heavy, certainly in the upper tier of the style. Excellent.
