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.

A very unique scotch ale to say the least. Smokey and sweet malty and bold. Smells sweet like gummy bears, tastes like Scotch. Not to overpowering as with many scotch ales, right on the money. Pours a dark red amber with a thin head and minimal lacing. May be my new favorite Magic hat beer.
