Strong Scotch ale brewed with Lactose. We start with pale ale, Munich, brown and caramel malts. Then we pump a barrel to the kettle and burn it until it caramelizes. Then we top it off with another 15 bbls of liquid boil it and add lactose (milk sugar) for even more body and sweetness. The result is a sweet and super complex ale like nothing we’ve had before.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours a very dark amber with a moderate head. Very nice and appealing roasting to this beer, with some interesting malt flavors to go along with it. Probably my favorite that AtG had when I was there.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Pours deep brown. Bose is sweet sugar, caramel, toast, breads, rich malts, bitters molasses. Flavor is similar sweet malt flavors and richness and even seems like I get some hop flavor in there. Bitter finish but not lingering. Nice beer. Growler.

ContemplateBeer (1988) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Aroma of molasses, milk chocolate, caramel and light lactose. Appearance is dark ruby red with light tan head. Flavor matches the nose, the chocolate and lactose are most noticeable. Palate is soft and bubbly. An interesting Scotch Ale.
