Notes/Commercial Description:
The first of the Malt Monster Series to be released, Wallace, WeeHeavy is an intense, malty brew that put our system to the test. A six hour boil gives a deep rich caramel complexity with a slight nuttiness and hints of roast, complimented with a clean, smooth, warming quality that provides exceptional balance.

Poured into a balloon glass.

The beer is a deep mahogany color with a lot of ruby coming through. No head, no lacing. Syrupy sweet malts in the nose and tongue with lots of warming alcohol. Almost a cinnamon spiciness about it. Great sipper, I really would love this in colder months.

Big, deep reddish-brown color; crystal clear; respectable one-finger thick, foamy head. Solid malt grain scent; caramel, brown sugar; molasses. Huge malt flavors; toffee and currants; boozy component; syrupy. Heavy bodied; residual sugar oomph.

A heavy-duty Scotch ale, big on malt sweetness and well-complemented with a well-tempered booziness. Yeah, I would agree the beer lives up to its series name. The fact that there is some even-handed blending of residual sugary sweetness with the high ABV is a winner in this case. I'd like to have had a thicker, denser head of foam, but that's a minor quibble when (for me), taste and feel are the core of any beer. A great initial offering for (what I hope) is strong series of malt-forward beers.

Pours maroon with an amber hue. An off white head forms but immediately quickly exits the building, leaving no trace of its existence behind. Unimpressive appearance. Aroma is definitely malty with molasses, toffee, nutty, raisons, and definite sugars. A touch roasty too. Flavor follows suit with the addition of some alcohol that benefits this beer greatly, imo. A flat, medium bodied mouthfeel, which works for this beer. Overall, not my favorite style but FCB did a nice job with this one. Enjoyed it and would drink again.
