COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big Sound Scotch Ale is dedicated to our good buddy Gino, the most punk rock bagpiper you’ll ever meet, and the rest of the men and women of Tampa Bay Pipes and Drums. Brown in color, Big Sound has huge notes of dark sweet toffee with underlying mild notes of coffee in the aroma. The flavor starts with a slight note of cherry and then opens into a Goliath of a malt character with notes of dark sweet toffee, slight hints of coffee and mild notes of toasted bread in the finish. Big Sound Scotch Ale pairs well with Haggis, Highland Games, Huge Heads and Enormous Pillows and of course Bagpipe music.

lusikka (7102) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2013
750 ml bottle @ CBC2013. Pours a copper brown colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of sweet heavy malts, old hops, caramel and grains. Flavour of sweet toasted malts, grains, heavy caramel and grassy bitterness. Medium bodied, sticky mouthfeel and a sticky, malty, sweet finish. Good, but just not my kind of a beer.

Poured brown with small but foamy head. Very malty, lots of cereal flavor. Not my favorite style, but a pretty good beer to try.

michaelinwa (635) - Bothell, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle from trade with Tricyclist. Dark brown pour, robust head, and good aroma of malt with strong hints of carmel. Taste is sweet malt with some figs. Very balanced, low complexity but interesting. It’s all about the malt with this, hops are barely noticeable. Finishes sweet. About the best in this style I’ve had.

Jag måste erkänna att jag hade otroligt svårt att tyda anteckningarn från den här ölen då jag var kraftigt berusad när jag drack den. Det jag kunde tyda lyder som följer; känsla av saison.
