4.34/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a nice dark amber color. Off white, 1 finger head. The retention is pretty good here, and there's a nice ring of foam around the glass as it dissipates.
The nose has notes of caramel. I am also getting some sweet malts. I also get a hint of cherry as well.
The taste I'm getting a lot of cherry on it, and that's up front. The caramel comes in on the backside.
Slightly boozy feeling, but not too much. There's a lot of carbonation in this beer. The cherry flavor tartness lingers.
Very interesting beer, and I'm very happy to get the chance to try it.

4.03/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Note: This version bought in fall of 2019 has 10 ABV on the bottle.

Look: It pours cooper with reddish hues. It has a slightly off white head. Head retention is low.

Aroma: It has a sweet aroma that is lead by caramel, toffee and dried cherries. There is a note of alcohol in the nose.

Taste: The flavors are malty with caramel, toffee and strong cherry. There are also some plum flavors in the background.

Feel: It has a medium body with a sweetish aftertaste. The alcohol warming is very smooth.

Overall, the fruit esters and dark fruit elements as stronger than most in the same category which adds a different dimension to this Wee Heavy.

4.45/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

L: Had this beer on-tap, poured into a snifter at Revelry's tasting room. Had a muddy brown color and a thick consistency. There was a small amount of foamy, off white head that lasted a fair amount of time. Pretty good lacing.

S: A sweet, sugary aroma with lots of caramel and some malt as well.

T: Tasted of malt, light notes of dark fruit (raisins, figs), caramel, toffee, and a tinge of hops in the finish. A big, sweet, well-balanced flavor. Lots of complexity and character. The caramel and toffee take center stage, but the other ingredients are well-represented as well.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a somewhat slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A well made, easy to drink Scotch Ale. Very, very enjoyable, especially on a cold winter's night.

4.74/5  rDev +14.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Arrives very dark brown with orange edges. Small, off-white head withlittle retention.
Smell is sweet, malty, caramel, treacle, rum. Great balance.
Taste is sweet, almost too sweet. Rum, malt, caramel, a wee hint of fruit. Again, great balance.
Full bodied, lightly effervesced. Near cloying on the palate but forgivable. Delicious.
