Used to hate this style. Can't imagine why.

I picked this up at a Binny's in Naperville.

Served in an Elysian tulip.

A: Poured a dark, dark brown, not too thick, and with a head, which is unusual for a Scotch Ale.

S: Sort of black cherry with added caramel + molasses.

T: Ahhhh. How refreshing. I never thought I would say that about this particular style. Not too spicy, and I could definitely tell it was in the style Pipeworks stated it was. Molasses in spades!

M: Molasses even permeated the mouthfeel on this one. Chewy, like a Tootsie Roll, but with a greater fruit component.

O: This brew is just flat out awesome. I've had some great Pipeworks brews now, and this one ranks up there with the best of them!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A- Pours a very dark brown with a little head but not a ton.

S- A lot of molasses and cinnamon and some other spices. You get that burn from the spices and alcohol in your nose.

T/M- Very nice malt front with a very sweetness that comes through. Then you get the molasses and all the spice that work so great together. It is so smooth you can not even taste the 9.5% very thick and it coats your mouth.

O- A great beer from Pipeworks, this is a style I usually do not drink but this is very good. It is amazingly smooth.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky brown, but not quite pond water. Small khaki head. Thin collar.

Smell - Buttery scotch ale aroma with caramel and molasses. Spicy, though. CInnamon, I think.

Taste - Again, scotch ale buttery caramel. Very intense molasses. Deep molasses. Even bitter. Very spicy in the finish, which seems a touch out of place.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Spicy. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Tasty combination of flavors. Took me a while to get used to the spices.

4.19/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: No foam head forms even with a bit of an agressive pour. Bits of lacing on the surface are all their is to speak of. Super dark brown with a hint of red put in.

Smell: Lots of caramel malts as typical of a Wee Heavy. I also got a bit of wine-like scent and nuts to go along with the almost overpowering malts.

Taste: Wow, the caramel malts follow the nose exactly. I really like Wee Heavys but this one seemed almost too sweet. A bit overdown in my opinoin. However, the subtlies of the vanilla and a sourish finish added an appreciated complexity to the beer which gave it s lot more character. The label brags spice butI really didn't notice any.

Mouthfeel: The beer was not to smooth. A thick body gave a good feel but was accompanied by little to no carbonation. Now lets talk about the alcohol. I usually can't notice any "warming" finsih or burn, but on this one it was a bit noticeable. I still thought it added to the beer, not too much by any means.

Overall: I enjoyed this beer due to I am a big fan of the Wee Heavy style. BUT, definately not my favorite.
