COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ContemplateBeer (1610) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Aroma: Dark brown sugar; maraschino cherries; spiced bread. Rich. Appearance: Murky dark brown pour with a sticky tan head that settles into a thin ring. Flavor: Bready with some caramel up front; fruity esters rear their head more toward the finish and seem more raisin-centric. Dries out decently enough. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Good scotch ale that serves as an able winter warmer.
