A - ruby brown with tan small head that left a ring of lace.

S - carmel, toffee, earthy

T - Very complex malt flavors. Carmelization is present but doesn't dominate. Doesn't come off as sweet as the perfect amount of bittering hops are present

M - Syrupy and chewy

D - I think Wee Heavy is my new favorite style.

This is a pretty tasty wee heavy.

Deep brownish-red, it has a small but fairly dense, creamy light tan head that soon diminishes to a foamy ring. It leaves fairly good lacing at first, but this dissipates.

The aroma is somewhat milod but fruity, caramelly, and roasty.

It's very malty in taste, with a fairly rich, deep, and sweet caramel-fruit character, with a lightly earthy roastiness and spicey-raisiny quality plus a faint bitterness. The alcohol is evident, but not overpowering or rough, adding a nice spice, fruity warmth.
