Wicked Weed Heresy Brown Ale (7.7% ABV / 39 IBUs): The Wicked Weed brewers use a considerable amount of chocolate and crystal malts to give this beer a rich malt flavor. They also add a generous amount of American hops as well as include dry hopping, which is not traditional for this style of beer (hence the heresy!). Heresy pours a clear dark brown color (almost black) with red hue and beige foam. The beer has aromas of malt, biscuit, and hop oils. Heresy is medium-bodied with mild carbonation. The beer has strong malt and biscuit flavors up front followed by a pronounced hops bitterness. This wicked deviation from the traditional brown ale style packs a delicious hop punch.
