This Wee Heavy pours an almost too clean and clear red. I mean a brilliant 90 minute boil ruby to a light red color. I poured this big beer into my Duvel Tulip glass. It Looks a little thin for a Wee Heavy. I smell sweet sweet malts. I did not detect anymore than a faint hint of booze smell. I detect no hops which is to style. The first taste is thicker than expected. I taste sweet malts at first followed by roasted flavored malts and some booziness. I did detect some spicy after taste that could have been some hops for balancing but they have been washed out by the booze and malts. I thought Ol Red CAD would be sweet and this beer is just that. I liked it.. I do have to say this is another solid beer by Erie but I think this Wee heavy is a little to one sided to be a home run. I will seek it out again though as it is a solid Wee Heavy which can be hard to come by in my area.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12-oz bottle into New Belgium globe

A - shallow/quickly-receding khaki head over a somewhat murky body of orange amber; high amount of visible carbonation

S - quite malty; caramel, dark fruit

T - bready malts, caramel sweetness, dark fruit notes (raisins and plums), touch of peat

M - slick full body, high carbonation, some alcohol warmth (less than expected from 10.1% abv)

O - Ol' Red Cease & Desist is a decent brew, but many superior Wee Heavy Ales are available.

A clear, reddish-brown liquid...the head is thin. Overall, the beer is unremarkable in appearance. The aroma is a little malty, with some caramel and toast notes. Full in body...it hides it's ABV. The brew is a little one dimensional and flat. It could be so much more.
