This is my least favourite wee heavy so far.
It's slightly hazy, dark red amber with a thin pale orange-tan head that dissipates fast to leave a small foam ring that eventually vanishes as well, leaving no lacing.
The smell is good: sweet, malty with a glazed roasted meaty quality, a little musky with a faint tang.
The first sip is decent, sweetly malty, woody, and a bit musky, but definitely one-dimensionally sweet and thick. It also dramatically worsens after the first sip and a definite, faintly vinegary alcohol note soon takes over, along with meat and gravy. The alcoholic harshness soon dominates, especially with any food. It's one-dimensional, overly alcoholic, and very rough, being mostly sweet, alcoholic, thick, and vinegary.
