Dry Dock "Wee Heavy"
Dry Dock Brewing Company - Aurora, Colorado USA
Scottish Ale (ABV 9.5%)

[Best served in a Thistle glass]

Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a hazy dark mahogany with an average sized (1-2 finger) light beige frothy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing.

The aroma was extremely sweet of a dark bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of molasses, caramel, toffee, dark fruit and a mild alcohol tinge.

The taste was heavily sweet and malty with notes of molasses and caramel throughout with the ending having a hint of dark fruit and toffee and a moderate alcohol finish. The flavor lasted an awesomely long time after the swallow with a nice sweet fruity ending.

Mouthfeel was medium in body and had a syrupy dry texture with a good lively carbonation.

Overall an extremely sweet and enticing brew that had a multitude of flavors coming together to create an very nice tasting ale.
