This week Bob and I continue our journey through the UK as we make our way to a Scottish Beer that can sometimes present itself as a bit boozy. In this episode we discuss Scottish Wee Heavy. This is a beer that brings a lot of breadiness and toast like qualities along with a bit of caramel/toffee. If you’re into a maltier beer that often packs quite a punch then the Scottish Wee Heavy might be exactly what you need. Style examples: 

  • 1. Orkney Skull Splitter
  • 2. Thirsty Dog Wulver
  • 3. The Duck Rabbit Wee Heavy Scotch-Style Ale
  • · ABV: 6.5-10%
  • · IBUs: 17-35
  • · Color: 14-25

 Our sample beer for the week: Founders Dirty Bastard 8.5% and 50IBU Beer as described by brewer: So good it’s almost wrong. Dark ruby in color and brewed with seven varieties of imported malts. Complex in finish, with hints of smoke and peat, paired with a malty richness and a right hook of hop power to give it the bad attitude that a beer named Dirty Bastard has to live up to. Ain’t for the wee lads. Support the show by doing your Amazon shopping through our affiliate link. Just click the link here or on my website and do your shopping as you would normally.
