Leinenkugel's Big Eddy Wee Heavy Scotch Ale

Leinenkugel's Brewing Company is from  Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.  The Big Eddy limited release beers are named after the Big Eddy Spring that provides the waters for brewing.  Leinenkugel's has been owned by Miller for some time now (who is now owned by MolsonCoors).

This 9.5% ABV beer pours a dark brown and ruby in color.  There is a short head of light brown foam.  The aroma is malty, caramel sweet, some sweet potato, and a peaty, smokey edge.  The taste is intensely malty and sweet and cycles through the aromas, ending with the same peaty, smokey edge.  The mouthfeel is somewhat thick, with a burn of sugar and alcohol at the end.  The flavors are nice, but this ends too sweet for me.
