COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 (3219) - Out Of This World, 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.

Caramel, wine and fruit with a hint of alcohol in the nose. Full body and mouth taste, fruity, has caramel and raisins, maybe some grape. Long aftertaste.

Tsekouratos (285) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - JUN 14, 2014
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.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle: Poured a deep cloudy amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of deeply caramelized malt with some residual sugar notes and light toffee. Taste is also dominated by deep caramelized malt with well-balanced residual sugar notes and some toffee. Body is full with limited filtration with medium carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I really enjoyed this scotch ale with plenty of character and perfect sipper for the end of the night.

VictorStr (1334) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2014
Mycket sötma i aromen, viss rökighet. Smaken är väldigt balanserad och kroppen är silkeslen! Tack Stefannilssons för sample !

StoutHead (671) - DENMARK - APR 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep hazy red with a one-finger light-beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel and a ihnt of smoke. Taste like aroma but with notes of ripe fruits, sugar and chocolate. It’s quite sweet with a dry and slightly bitter aftertaste. Body is above medium and oily. Better than I remember from the first time I had it.

stefannilssons (1472) - SWEDEN - APR 26, 2014
Det här var riktigt fint, smaken var elegant balanserad med toner av trä, torkad frukt och äpple. Kroppen va härligt stabil och upplevelsen fulländad.
