Many thanks to Enola for getting me this growler on his visit.
Thanks to pop the cap, French Broad has taken their Wee-Heavy and bumped the abv up to 7% and renamed it Wee Heavy-er. I just off of the phone with the brewer and he said a Wee-Heavy-est is in the plans. He said the Wee-Heavy-er will be a year around release and the Wee Heavy-est will be a seasonal. I'm guessing a winter seasonal. Now to the beer.
Appearance: I opened the growler last night and am finishing it today. It still should be fresh. The color is dark. Porter or stout colored. Nice fluffy head that disapates rather quickly. It stayed longer last night. Thin bubbly lace.
Smell: Coffee, Roasted Malts, Hint of alcohol in a pleasent way.
Taste: Very malty, coffee like taste. Slight chocolate finish, and some alcohol warming. The alcohol is noticable, but not in a bad way.
Mouthfeel: Warming but slightly thin. This could be a result of the 24hrs or so since I've opened my growler.
Drinkability: This is a drinkable beer, but remember this is 7% and not the previous 4%.
This is a good beer and I look forward to trying the Wee Heavy-est when it is released. (1,145 characters)
