Brewed by:
Magic Hat Brewing Company
Vermont, United States

Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.30%

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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Light brown with a thin beige head. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Mild malt and nutty smell.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste nutty with heavier malts some very mild hop notes.

Overall: OK brew. Glad I tried it out.
