A good wee heavy. A little overly sweet, but it's got a warm feel to it. I enjoyed the heavy taste of a traditional Wee Heavy, but it does flow good. It's a solid introduction in the style and worth picking up a bottle or two.

Poured into a tulip glass. Beer brewed 9 September 2014; drank 31 October 2014. Happy Halloween!

Look- Dark but not thick, no head or lacing.

Smell- like an ale

Taste- plenty of carbonation and hop bite at the finish. Good wee heavy taste.

Feel- Rolls around the tongue like a liquid marble. Carbonation pairs with hops at finish for a bite.

Bottled on May 14, 2014. Five months old.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams nonick.

a: Black with clear ruby when seen through light. Inch tall tan head receded quickly to patchy surface foam and spotty lacing.

s: Dark caramel.

t: Creamy caramel malt accompanied by a considerable hop bite. Bitterness cloys the left and right insides of the mouth. Sweet to bitter finish.

m: Medium and exceptionally silky. Rather low carbonation.

o: A tasty Scotch ale with flavor and punch. Only drawback is the weak carbonation.

Pours a very dark brown with a small brown foam head that dissipates rather quickly. Tiny bit of lacing around the edges. Aroma leads with sweet, roasted malts and alcohol. A good amount of nuttiness. A bit of caramel. Taste is wonderfully sweet caramel malts, and a touch of bitterness. Roasted nuts, coffee, and cocoa. Alcohol is very well masked, although it does come through a bit more as it warms. This one is medium bodied, a bit thick, but still very smooth. Goes down with relative ease. As a relative newcomer to Wee Heavies, this is my favorite that I've had so far.
