3.99/5  rDev +5.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours thick viscose murky brown in with a thin tan fizzy head that retains nicely.

Smell is malt forward. Lots of toffee aromas forward that smell rich and creamy. There is also a sweet candy like aroma that is followed by a mellow nut aroma that best the end.

Taste is also malt forward with nutty flavors coming out much more in the taste. There is a fig like sweetness that follows midway through and the finish is some more sweet toffee like malt flavors.

Mouthfeel is thick. Light carbonation helps keep it smooth with the big stickiness from the malt.

4.08/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Appearance: dark mahogany color. Completely opaque. A finger of a tannish head that added fairly quickly and leaves a small lacing.

Smell: strong sweet caramel malts. Maybe some coffee. Strong walnut.

Taste: malts come out with a toffee and caramel taste. Some malty nuttiness. Big walnut taste comes through.

Mouthfeel: fairly smooth. Good medium to full body. Good sweetness without being cloying

Overall: good wee heavy with some strong walnut taste. Solid offering from pipeworks.

3.75/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Sits black in the glass but pours a dark brown color. Low carbonation, thin layer sat on the edge of the glass while drinking.

Smell: Nose is filled with toffee and chocolate. A unique almond aroma certainly makes itself known on the body. Slightly smokey with tones of oak also seem to be present on the back end. Maple syrup sweetness rounds out the aroma.

Taste: A semi sweet malt body greets the palate. Roasted, nutty almonds have a dry feeling in the body and are surprisingly potent. Sweet molasses and maple syrup lighten this brew up on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Easy drinker at 9%. Carbonation seems to fit the brew. Overall malt presence seems to be a tad thin. Nutty body provides some dryness with some sweetness finishing out the back end.

Overall: Well, Pdubs never makes a dull brew. The almonds are really uniquely present. Unfortunately, lot of the traditional Wee Heavy tones that I enjoyed in Last Kiss seem to get lost. Something worth a try if you are looking for a one of the kind brew.
