New Jersey Beer Co. Weehawken Wee Heavy

Hey all, thanks for coming by!  Since my last post, I went out jogging once.  I did 1 mile in a little more than 11 minutes.  Not very quick, but it felt good.  I can't wait to get back out again!  

Tonight I am drinking Weehawken Wee Heavy from New Jersey Beer Co.  I picked this beer up at the brewery in North Bergen, NJ while visiting for a tour and tasting.

Wee Heavy / Scotch Ale

12 oz. bottle poured into my Dogfish Head signature glass

Weehawken Wee Heavy pours a deep, dark brown color.  Quite close to black.  Only a small off-white head developed, and it didn't last for long.  There is little lacing to speak of.  The aroma begins with smoked malt and dark fruits.  As the Wee Heavy warms, a slight chocolate aroma arrives.  I'm drinking this beer slow, so as to let the maximum amount of aroma and flavor to develop.  Lots of flavors do come out as this one warms, so let it sit!  The flavors are a subtle smokiness, chocolate, bread and coffee.  There is only the smallest bit of alcohol at the tail end of each sip.  It's a bit heavier than a medium bodied beer, and has only a small amount of carbonation.

Overall:  It may be because I am partial to winter time beers, but this is my favorite of New Jersey Beer Co.'s offerings.  If you can get to the brewery, get out there and try this before they're all out for the season!
