A murky, muddy brown liquid with a tall, frothy head. Not much retention and a quick fade. Scant lacing. Deep nose. Rich and inviting. Molasses, rum, coconut, vanilla. Some light cherry and oak. Underneath all of that you get classic Wee Heavy malt aromas. Toasted grains and lots of burnt sugars. Taste is superb. All the flavors in the nose and more. The malt is big and full of bread and brown sugar. Light cocoa and vanilla. Graham crackers express in a finish that offers up a melange of barrel qualities. Cherries, oak, vanilla, rum... wow. Typically low bitterness. With all the rum, flavors the alcohol is very well integrated. So delicious. Feel is atypical. Medium heavy syrup, with a light tingly carbonation. Drinks a little too easily for the abv. This is an expertly crafted and integrated ale. Even at ten bucks a bottle I'm looking to have another. Exceptional beer.
