Danish: Wee Heavy, Scotch eller Scottish Ale – kært barn har mange navne. Med denne øl har vi ønsket at tage det bedste fra den britiske brygtradition tilsat en let krydrende kant af tørverøg for at opnå den helt rigtige skotske stemning. Mange har spurgt os om vi rent faktisk bar kilt under brygningen af denne øl. Well, bare fordi et spørgsmål kan stilles, er det jo ikke sikkert, at det skal besvares! Men ja, der findes billeder. Og nej, de vil aldrig blive offentliggjort… Hvis du er af den opfattelse, at britiske øl generelt er flade og svage, så vil Smoking Scotsman overraske dig. Dette er en øl, som bør nydes i små velafmålte slurke foran pejsen derhjemme på herresædet – gerne med en stor tallerkenfuld haggis. Slainte!

English: Wee Heavy, Scotch or Scottish Ale – to be honest we don’t really care. We wanted to take the best of British brewing traditions and add a subtle edge of peaty smoke for that special Islay feeling. Many people have asked us if we took that feeling so far that we actually DID wear kilts during the brewing of this beer. Well, we honestly believe that not all questions necessarily need an answer. But yes, photos DO exist. And no, they shall never be revealed… If you firmly believe that all British-style ales are low in alcohol and low in carbonation then Smoking Scotsman will prove you wrong. This is a beer to be savoured in small sips in front of a roaring fire back home at the manor – preferably with a big plate of haggis. Sláinte! – or whatever.

Bottle split at Amager Brewery mini tasting, RBESG ’15 day 3, thanks to Papsoe, 22/08/15. Hazed amber with a decent beige covering. Nose is malt forward, brown bread, fruit loaf, pinch of spice. Taste comprises more smoke character, sweet licks, toffee, candied fruit peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for style, subtle smoke, perhaps a touch overly sweet.

It is very long since I have tasted scotch ale, but I have always loved this beer-type because of the rich malt flavor with lots of flavor notes. Smoking Scotsman disappoints me not quite, yet lacking a bit. The aroma is full of dark caramel and a little touch of smoked malt. The flavor is very sweet at first impression. It has a sweet taste of brown sugar that’s just on the edge of being too much. Slightly smoky tang keeps just the edge that makes it familiar. The tastes of dark caramel and a bit of ripe berries. Malt character is a bit like wet forest with a little truffle bitter aftertaste. I had wanted a beer with a little less malt sweetness and a little more smoked malt, so the overly expensive price of nearly 60 Dkr. It will with no doubt be good for rice pudding (because of the sweetness), or just for enjoiment in front of the fireplace (which brewery suggest).

Flavours of prunes, brown sugars, barley malts, cream, bitters, sweets, raisin, malts, sweet wood, toast, molasses and some wood. Aftertaste is a mix of barley malts, sticky tones, dark fruits, brown sugars and bitters. Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, medium to full bodied and a sticky texture. Delicious stuff. Thick and balanced. Smooth, sticky and no trace of alcohol. Very well done!

Batch 605. Meilleure avant 05.2016. Sur le coup j’ai trouvé cette bière très sucrée mais avec le temps elle s’est ouverte et a partagé ses saveurs et sa complexité. Des saveurs de gâteau aux fruits enrobé d’un alcool doux et une légère fumée d’un Écossais rêvant d’indépendance.

SlovakSniper (4046) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
Batch 605. Meilleure avant 05.2016. Une robe ambrée et une mousse beige qui reste collée. Un nez de caramel croquant et foncé avec une lueur de fumée, des fruits confits et une touche de liqueur d’amandes. Un goût bien malté et légèrement fumé avec une pointe d’alcool qui freine les débordements sucrés. C’est loin d’être désagréable. Un corps généreux avec une texture huileuse et un pétillement modérément bas. Une finale qui n’est jamais douce ni trop chaude, amère d’alcool et de grains grillés aux accents de caramel brûlé. Très intéressante lorsque bien tempérée.

500 ml bottle from Cervezalandia. Amber color, white head, thin and thick. Aromas of caramel, maltiness and some bread. Taste was pretty much the same, with alcohol added. Here and there some more fruity notes appeared with raisins and maybe plums. Sweet aftertaste, long. Medium to full body with low carbonation.
