This was poured into a thistle.
The appearance was a dark brown color with some light amber hues along the sides of the glass. Thin white foamy head slid off fairly quick to leave some light semi-clingy lace.
The aroma had some raisins, brown sugar, breadiness and a little bit of caramel/toffee malts.
The flavor brought the sweetness from the prior mentioned aromas together to ride on into the aftertaste fairly nice.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Nice expected "wee heavy" smoothness rolling along my tongue. Nice smooth semi-sweet malty finish.
Overall, I liked this one for me but was hoping for some smokiness or some light peatiness. Still, I'd have again if I could get it again.

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This FINE Scottish style pours a rugged
dark brown with amber highlights and a nice had of light tan foam that subsides
to a thick ring, thin subtle pool, and sports some nice sudsy lacing. Nose of rich raisins
and brown sugars awash in breaded malts. Flavors hit the perfect notes for a wee heavy
more than a "Scottish style". Rich raisin bread melds with brown sugar and a touch of
toffee with very subtle herbal hop notes on the rear that melt into a buttery smooth
alcoholic warmth with a touch of dark black berry and dark cherry flavors on the rear.
Excellent mouth feel---rich, smooth, nothing overbearing or out of sorts. Light carbonation,
medium to lightly full mouth feel, and a sweet malty finish.

Overall-----me LIKEY A LOTY!

Cheers

12 Fl. Oz. bottle
Served in a snifter

This beer appears brown when poured. When held to the light rust colored highlights come through. It is topped with an inch of khaki head that leaves some decent lacing.

Rich malty aroma with hints of booze. It has some dark, dried fruit smell, too.

The flavor follows the smell. It is sweet and malty with some subtle raisin and prune. The alcohol is better hidden in the taste.

Medium to full bodied with medium to low carbonation.

This is a solid Scottish-style ale. I like the style, so I have not had many bad ones. Triple Digit makes a lot of good beers.

Thanks to Jason for this bottle, brought all the way to my house from the brewery.
Not my favorite style, but I've had enough Wee Heavy's to compare.
Poured into my Delirium tulip, served at 50 degrees.
Look: nice copper/amber color, true to style. Off white 2 finger head, nice retention and lacing.
Smell: Thick malty, prune sweet, maybe a hint of raisins too.
Taste: Not as sweet as the smell; malty goodness, dark fruits, molasses or brown sugar, barely taste the alcohol. As it warms the alcohol comes out a little more.
Mouthfeel: Nice medium, not thick, can feel the carbonation.
This is a good one to share, I couldn't drink the bomber by myself. Capped it and will have another glass tonight.

22oz bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip (over 2 pours). Careful pours to leave the sediment behind. 2013 bottling.

Appearance: Clear very dark copper to ruby red beer. Thin light tan persistent foam. Very nice color. Small amount of thick strands of semi-persistent lacing - they would slowly slide down the glass.

Smell: Toffee, brown sugar, bread, and a hint of alcohol.

Taste: Toffee, some hints of cocoa, malt sweetness, boozy fruitiness, hint of raisin, roasted malt bitter finish. Some warmness as well with it all. Maybe just a hint of citrus as well at the very end.

Mouthfeel: Sticky, thick, spicy carbonation on the tongue briefly.

Overall / Drinkability: Dangerous dangerous dangerous beer. A wee heavy that starts off pleasant and inviting, and then sends you on a ride afterwards but you probably won't mid. There is so much heaviness to the beer that the alcohol is well hidden, but yet this is still a beer to be sipped and savored. But it is so tasty that I found myself taking several sips in a row to pull out the flavors, and then realizing I was going to be in trouble. Probably best to share a bottle of this size with someone else if you're planning to drink it quickly, but if you want to finish it yourself, plan on taking your time. I had this with Welsh Rabbit for dinner but had plenty to savor slowly after dinner. A well done Wee Heavy.

A: Dark burnt brownish orange with not much head.

S: Bread and caramel up front. a little smoke before toffee and sweet funky dark fruit take over. sour cherry and wood.

T: Sweet caramel and toffee. alot of bread. banana esters and overly ripe cherry. a hint of yeast with just the slightest smoked and burnt wood. a little roast is hinting at the edges of flavor with an acidic finish.

M: Medium bodied with a full fruity finish.

O: Very well put together. balanced. a tad too sweet for me but a great after dinner sipper. /89

A very well done "wee heavy". You can tell a lot of care went into the process to carmelize the wort just right. It is not the most quaffable ale in the world. But it's not supposed to be. I had it on tap at the brewery (Listermann's), served by the brewer himself. That helped the experience immensely. It was required to be served in a plastic cup which was a shame but I could still tell it had a nice head that held the sweet, brown, pruney aroma. The mouthfeel was thick but not cloying and despite the abv being nearly 11% it did not have a solvent note to it at all. The flavor was a wonderful malty experience with a touch of maple and herbal bitterness provided by the hops far off in the background.
Excellent job by Cincinnati's smallest and most rogue brewery. Home to the long suffering bloatarians brewing league who still meet there regularly.
