Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy |  6.30% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

It’s OK to be a Wee Heavy Much has been made of the ills of smoking. Jinx thinks there’s nothing wrong with it. For years, he stood strong with his peat-smoked whiskey malt mash. He held his head high when others made fun of his wee heavy physique, becoming a mainstay in Magic Hat’s Night of the Living Dead Variety 12-Pak. People said he’d never attain an Original Gravity above 15.1 degrees Plato or an ABV above 6%. He proved them wrong. Take Magic Hat into the next alellenium. Vote Jinx.

4.33/5  rDev +14.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a brownish ruby red, more brown than red with a nice tan head.
Smell is familiar cant place it… But it is sweet and oak smelling.
Taste is woodsy, like smoked wood if that makes sense a caramel taste also.
Mouthfeel is smooth and crisp and leaves a coating feel.
A good tasting beer, that’s easily drinkable.
This is my first smoked brew and a good one at that.
