Belhaven Wee Heavy

Like Ice Cube once said: today was a good day. Unlike Mr. Cube, my definition of a good day was defined by staying busy at work and getting rewarded for some stuff I’ve been working on for a number of weeks. I will say that there was “No barking from the dogs, no smog”. On top of that I “had to stop at a red light” and “looking in my mirror [there was] not a jacker in sight”. A very good day indeed.

I’m wrapping the evening up with a bottle of Belhaven Wee Heavy. It’s a Scottish ale. This is my first ever Belhaven brew. They are out of Scotland, which seems pretty appropriate given the beer style.

This puppy is a dark, dark mahogany color. Flavors and aroma match the color well – dark fruit. I’m going to say raisins. More than raisins, you get a thick sweetness which reminds me of brown sugar. Don’t expect any hops or bitter with this one.

The label calls for sipping and savoring. I’d agree. Good beer.
