NJ Beer Co.’s “Weehawken Wee Heavy”

      Well, another two feet of snow has dropped from the unforgiving sky here in NJ. Leaving my arms tired, and my back sore. While my last two posts have focused on Stouts as a winter warming treat, there is a beer that serves the purpose of warming one up before or after they venture out in the cold. The Scotch Ale or Wee Heavy Ale is a beer that will warm your spirits enough to get back out in the cold and clear that last bit of snow from your drive or walkway. There are some great Scotch Ales to be had out there. Let me suggest one that I had the pleasure of having my growler filled with at a great new brewery in North Bergen, NJ.
       NJ Beer Co.’s “Weehawken Wee Heavy” pours a syrupy golden brown with a slow forming, two finger thick, tan head that displays some nice cascading. The aroma is sweet with brown sugar, molasses and fresh raisins. The taste is in line with the smells, with light brown sugar and sweet alcohol. Mid-palate there is a bitter, earthy flavor, and the finish turns back to sweet with a touch of smoke. The mouthfeel is medium and creamy, with soft moderate carbonation. The 8.3% ABV is strong, but not overpowering, but it sure will warm you up in no time! Just another beer option to help make this rough winter seem a little more enjoyable! Here’s to Good Beers!

  1. Nice review! So far, I’ve enjoyed the regular lineup form NJBC, and I’m hoping that as they grow, the seasonal beers like this will be available in bottles as well.
