Had a snifter of this & was moved to pick up a 750ML bottle at the brewery: good stuff at first blush. Now it must face my basement judgment, computer in lap. Split with my wife.

Carefully poured by my twelve year old, the beer is low-carb-ruby, gleaming clear around the edges. Nose is like a caramel nose spray infused with booze, with a low-line of dark fruits. I know some USPS employees who’d like that kind of thing.

Steel Toe Wee Heavy is one of those beers where my first swig turns into two, three, then a long pull. Ahhhh. This is a caramel dream. Deep, bottomless caramel floats across the tongue & beckons the lips to stay on the glass. After that who cares? But I suppose I should at least try: lovely molasses on the back of the tongue, rich rusty sweetness, mildly acidity, toffee. Hint of alcohol. I am drinking this faster than a drowning man sips river water.

So rich, so decadent, so easy to drink, this is turning my crank with both hands. Steel Toe is a hidden gem of the Twin Cities; despite that, this still took me by surprise. Top-notch, this is an excellent wee heavy, & if I ever get to try the barrel-aged version, I’m there. Wow.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber. Small white head. Thin collar.

Smell - Toffee. A hint of oxidation. Caramel with that distinct scotch ale aroma.

Taste - Sweet caramel. Toffee. Buttery. Nutty. Slightly bitter in the back with just a hint of oxidation.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Medium low carbonation.

Overall - Tastes good, not very interesting, though.
