Wee Heavy (BelHaven)
Ratebeer 3.6 91st percentile

The delightfully bitter and hoppy nose overplayed the caramel malt and wood hints. Oddly the bitterness was upfront; a little smoke with a little raisin added in. This quickly dissipated to reveal a generous dose of earthy, toffee malts. Yum!
For a big first taste it surprisingly faded off to leave only the slightest of caramel sweetness and alcohol tingle.

It was a good Scotch Ale and at $3.55 for a 500ml bottle it is a great deal.

In a moment of weakness I almost bought Grid Defense on Steam. Then that little voice in the back of my head said, "must see sunshine, must see sunshine, your family loves you."
If you are a fan of the heavy Scotch style ales this is sure to please.
