Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy |  6.30% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

This was one of the worst beers I have ever had. It has a chemical after taste. I love all styles of beers. I can not understand the high ratings it's gotten on here.. I had to pour 8 oz out. I just couldn't drink it. I like all the other beers magic hats has. But Wow!!!!!!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass

Appearance: pours a clear copper with a good head

Aroma: toffee and caramel on the nose

Taste: not quite as sweet as I had expected. Mild caramel and toffee flavors, and just a tad smokey

Mouthful: medium bodied, not as heavy as expected.

Overall: a good solid brew, but I was expecting something closer to a scotch wee heavy.
