look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a transparent mahogany brown with a beige head and smooth slippery lace. Head retention is low. Aroma is of malt, caramel, and dark fruits with an earthy/roasty, yet astringent background. Taste is of malt, molasses and caramel with an astringent hop finish. Palate is light to medium bodied with a smooth start and a tart biting roasty finish.

Notes: Lighter bodied than I expected. Smoothes and mellows as it warms.

Serving type: bottle

4.41/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured a dark chocolate brown, almost opaque color into a snifter with a 1/2F head.

Aroma: plum, raisin, fig, which continue strong throughout the tasting.

Mouth feel: pleasantly carbonated- more than other wee heavies I have tasted.

Taste: smooth fig, plum and raisin with a light alcohol finish.

This is a classic wee heavy. The flavors are similar to American beers in the same style which are only slightly more pronounced. This is an impressive beer- low ABV, yet a sipper. The body is lighter than American styles, making it easier to drink.

This is the real deal.
