I like the Imperial series and what Boston Beer attempts on these brews. The Wee Heavy pours a dark mahogany. Smaller tan head than other Sam offering than again the corbonation is alittle low on thisone but the beer itself is thick. Makes sence to me that lace to world be lite.

Aromas of dark roasty malts, earthy hints and wood smoke.

The taste carries thoughs dark roasted malts with a kick of sweetness. Sugars of brown, raw cane like. Earthy peet and smoke linger in back as a alcohol suttles the taste.

Mouthfeel is hindered by the sweetness.

Overall an ok Scotch ale. I like the style and this brew borders the drinkability with the sweetness while it hides the ten% abv. I'd repeat bye if I need to.

Poured the bottle into a glass. A decent amount of foam was formed. The beer has a dark amber look to it. The smell is malty and sweet. This beer has many layers of flavor. The first to hit the tongue is malt, with a rich almost chocolate flavor. The finish leaves with a lasting enjoyable flavor. Would be good as an after dinner drink. Cheers.
