Alesmith

7 Dec

I had the great luck to find a good sampling of Alesmith’s 750s: Grand Cru, Speedway Stout, Old Numbskull, Horny Devil and Wee Heavy Scotch Ale. Recently split the Wee Heavy with my roommate, whose monkey toes are pictured below trying desperately to grasp the bottle.

It so happened, that she and I had been reminiscing about the glories of really delicious date cake.  I can only dream about the beautiful possibilities of this scotch ale paired with a date cake or date tart.  A gorgeous dark ruby pour even though at first glance it appears to be dark brown/black. The 10% abv is well hidden for the most part until the aftertaste and subsequent warming affect.  Two finger airy tan head that faded fast.  The aroma is really heavenly, boozy warmed dates and the flavor is a hint of the aroma but boozier.  Not overpoweringly sweet.
