COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full Malted Jacket is our take on a classic "wee heavy" Scotch Ale. Itís brewed with a base of Golden Promise malt, an heirloom variety from Scotland. Notable additions of light and dark British caramel malts with a smidgen of chocolate malt help add flavors of rich toffee. Full Malted Jacket endures an extended three hour boil to add a unique richness to this lusciously malty brew. Itís hopped just enough with British Goldings hops from East Kent to balance things out.

Pours a clear amber color with a finger of off-white head. Sweet and malty, rather substantial. Not terribly complex, but a nice nose. There is a bit of dark fruit character to it, maybe a hint of peat. The flavor is similarly simple, but enjoyable regardless. A solid flavor of caramel and toffee with a hint of earthy hops and peat. Sweet dark fruit notes are also there. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation.

daknole (8863) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2012
A deep caramel colored pour, off white head. Aroma has a hint of peat but is dominated by way too much malt. I felt like I was eating some spent grain when I drank this. Overpowering in my opinion.
