Madhouse Wee Heavy

The Madhouse Brewing Company originated in Newton, Iowa, and now have a new location in Des Moines. This is a 13.5% ABV imperial Scotch ale that was aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels.

The beer pours very dark brown to black. There is a half-inch of tan foam. The aroma is caramel, toffee, vanilla, oak and bourbon, with a bit of maple syrup and dark roasted malt. The taste follows the aromas, hitting all the same notes, very rich with the sweet, malty, caramel, and dark fruit, with bourbon and breakfast layered on top. The beer drinks very smooth with little carbonation. It is warming, but not at all boozy. This is rich and delicious. This is damn near perfect; excellent!
