AleSmith Wee Heavy 750ml NR
Scotland's bone-chilling winters command a strong, richly-flavored brew. J.P. Gray's Wee Heavy is such an ale. Named for Brewmaster Skip Virgilio's maternal grandfather, J.P. Gray's is a blend of the prized Maris Otter barley and dark roasted barley which imparts a slightly smoky flavor and a deep chestnut appearance.
In the style of a classic Scottish wee heavy, this fine ale is remarkably smooth and malty with background flavors of chocolate and molasses. Warmth is provided by a substantial 8.5% alcohol by volume. The high alcohol and fresh ingredients allow this ale to age well over time.
Appearance: Deep mahogany color, sparkling clarity, and excellent head formation and retention when properly served.
Flavor: Deep caramelly malty flavor with just a hint of smoke in the finish.
Aroma: The aroma is sweet and voluptuous, reflecting the flavor with malt, hop and yeast characteristics.
Mouthfeel (body/texture): Lush, full, rounded, almost chewy. This is a BIG beer!
Alc. by vol. 9%, by wt. 7.2%
Ideal Serving Temperature 50 to 55 F (7.2 to 12.8 C).
