For those of you who don’t know who "Scotty Karate" is... He is a local one man band who plays an amazing slurry of honky tonk influenced, punk country songs. His voice is amazing as well as his high energy shows. (Check him out @ www.scottykaratetime.com) So, we decided to make a beer and name it in his honor. This beer is a big, full bodied Scottish ale. It is 9.75% alc. but it is very smooth and balanced. Since Scotty is also very passionate about beer I asked him to write a description for you, so from the man himself... Aroma: Smells like A fresh caramel apple with a hint of cinnamon inside of cranberry shortbread. Or maybe fresh home made hard candy (from home economics class-7th grade). Flavor: Tastes like a smokey chocolate chip cookie, wild roadside cherry-asparagus, woody, crispy leaf on a fall day.

Way too sweet for me. That makes it hard to drink. Thats the main disadvantage. On other hand, it’s very complex. Sugary, raisiny, dark-fruity, havy flavours. Very full body. Not my style though.

TET (1751) - FINLAND - MAY 23, 2014
A very dark brown beer with a medium and yelloiwsh beige head. The nose of dry wood, toffee, sweet and red berries, some chocolate and smoke. Taste with same elements that were in the aroma, some toffee, fresh wood, chocolate, low bitterness, also hint of smoke in the end. Medium bodied, quite smooth and nice to drink. Lots of elements and nothing is bothering but still not very inspirating. The good beer, anyway.

Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, dark fruits, raisins, some figs. Flavour is malty caramel sweetness, slight candy sugar, some dark fruits. Manages to hide its alcohol well.

Bamsen78 (3388) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2014
On tap @ Setka Pub, Poznań. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby and brown with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with notes of hops. Sweet, fruity flavour, with notes of malt, lozenges and alcohol. Bitter, metallic aftertaste. Rather disturbing but drinkable. My rating #2400.

warhawk91 (302) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 11, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pour is a deep dark crimson, a bit hazy, thin off-white head which diminishes quickly. Smell is sweet fruit, toffee, caramel, butterscotch. Taste has a good caramel sweetness, some cherry and plum flavor, and a surprising hop bitterness. Definitely has some alcohol kick on the way down. Decent wee heavy, I think the taste may catch up to the nose as it ages.

Growler to pint glass pours rich dark brown with medium head. Taste is malt, caramel and more malt. Smooth and rich with just a hint of hop at the end and goes down entirely too easily. Well worth having.
