Color is dark ruby red with a slight brown tone to it, some frothy head appeared but faded very fast.
Smells of caramel and toffee, slightly sweet, very candy-like. It reminded me of a lightly flavored soy sauce. Very intreging aroma.
The taste is the best part, its super silky smooth with a nice toffee tint and caramel malt backing with just the right amount of hop hinted in the dry finish. The only thing that through me about this wee heavy was that isn't very heavy at all. It's bold, medium bodied, and has a silky smooth, light creamy feel. It tasted alot like Victory's Old Horizontal, but just a tad on the lighter side. Very drinkable, incredibly smooth and nicely flavored.

Binny's Orland

Belhaven's Wee Heavy pours a handsome transparent mahogany. The pour conjured up a finger and a half eggshell head that had good staying power and left respectable lace on it's way down. A good looking wee heavy!

There's a bright yeasty fruitiness upfront reminiscent of figs and plums. Toffee and toasted brown sugar create a great complexity as they wrap around the fruitiness. Tendrils of peat smoke bring up the rear and add the finishing touches.

Flavor comes across like the nose suggested but the malt is much more pronounced and clean. The peat emerges nicely as this brew gets closer to room temperature. This is all at once fruity and malty with the perfect level of sweetness.

If there's any complaint it's that the mouthfeel could use a bit more heft. Besides that it's smooth and creamy with a little warmth on the swallow.

Great drinkability! One I could sit back and enjoy multiple pints of without a problem. There's a great balance of malt, fruit, and smoke.

Belhaven Wee Heavy is an excellent example of the style. I, unfortunately, don't see too many wee heavies around but luckily this one is always on the shelves.
