The Brü Revü – Samuel Adams Imperial Series Wee Heavy

This was my first experience with the Samuel Adams Imperial Series, and although I have had the Sam Adams Scotch Ale in the past I knew the Wee Heavy was going to be bigger and better.  It poured a dark burnt amber, almost opaque with a thin tan head.  It had a sweet malty aroma with a hint of burnt chocolate.  The flavor was very bold and intense like a barley wine with a sharper smoky burnt malt flavor with the sweet malt hiding underneath.  This was a big complex beer that deserves the Imperial moniker and I will definitely be looking for the rest of the Samuel Adams Imperial Series Beers.
