About This Beer
We’re pumped to share the 2022 vintage of the #3 ranked Scotch Ale/ Wee Heavy in the world on Untappd!
To make it, AleSmith aged their 4 time GABF winning Scotch-style Ale in rum and bourbon barrels which infused the decorated brew with even more complexity.
This full-bodied sipper is like tucking into an oatmeal chocolate raisin cookie — sweet, layered, and comforting. Each malty mahogany quaff goes down smooth and easy, with a touch of oaky tannin. Nuances of vanilla and dried dark fruits thread through toffee, caramel, and cocoa tones, while the liquors express themselves in its spicy finish and warming 14% ABV.
Malty Barrel Aged Boozy Chocolatey
Bourbon Barrels Rum Barrels
The nose is complex and warm - bourbon, raisins, dark chocolate, spices, and apricot seeds. Didn't get the rum barrel, cos bourbon overwhelms. Taste - gentle sweetness from dried fruits, some oak, a touch of semisweet chocolate. The finish is short and the taste could be more saturated. But for the style it's great!
not a bad beer just wish It had more flavor. ￼￼
Tastes like a BA Pumpkin beer. Lots of pumpkin 🎃🎃
Gingerbread cookie all the way through.
Extremely complex. Notes of raisins mixed with other dark fruit sweetness, chocolate, vanilla with okay undertones. There are to many different flavors trying to balance. does nit commit
definitely a wee heavy.
this is really good
