Default Good Commercial Wee Heavy Examples?

I read about this style in Brewing Classic Styles and it seems like something I would really like and would consider making myself. But first I want to try some good commercial examples of the style. Would anyone have recommendations for a good Wee Heavy obtainable in the Indianapolis area?

Don't know about Indianapolis, but the BJCP list of commercial examples is:

Traquair House Ale, Belhave Wee Heavy, McEwan's Scotch Ale, Founders Dirty Bastard, MacAndrew's Scotch Ale, AleSmith Wee Heavy, Orkney Skull Splitter, Inveralmond Black Friar, Broughton Old Jock, Gordon Highland Scotch Ale, and Dragonmead Under the Kilt.

Tasty style! Enjoy!

Dirty Bastard is an excellent beer as well.
