Holy highland sheep dip! This is a stumblingly big, sticky sweet "wee" heavy. Just a little of the old sod in the aroma with a hint of iodine. Deep reddish amber in the tulip with a thin mustache of foam. The sprightly mouthfeel is what makes this glowering malty mess drinkable.

Vast depths of sweet malt with that slightly smoky roasted flavor. A little bitterness in the aftertaste. All the varieties of sweetness, let me count the ways-- burnt sugar, Sugar Daddy, Aunt Jemima syrup, wild buckwheat honey, and a touch of pecan caramel roll. My teeth hurt.

From the 22 oz bottle bought at the Aurora brewery in 2012. This seems to have lasted well, like fruit bottled in honey.

Having previously abandoned all other beers to embrace Trippel as the nirvana of all things brewed with grain, I've been converted to Dry Dock's Wee Heavy (no pun intended).

This beer is all about the Malt and yeast, which is yummy from the first quaff til the last slurp. Yummy, malty goodness that satisfies the pallet and leaves the consumer satisfied with high ABV and carmelly yummy sweetness - but with enough hopppines to remind us that this is beer and not caramel ice cream topping.

Highly reccomemded.
