Cold Smoke Scotch Ale earned a silver medal in 2002 and a gold medal in the 2007 NABA brewfest. Formulated with Montana grown 2-row barley, northwest Goldings hops, and lotsa love, this hearty ale drinks very smooth. Not bitter at all and not too sweet either. Novice beer drinkers have been known to take a taste and then say, “WOW! That’s not what I expected… that’s GOOD!” A hint of roasted barley lends a slight coffee-like smoky finish. It packs a 6.5% abv punch. Perfect after a day of rippin’ lines on area or your favorite back country getaway. Available in 16 oz aluminum cans. 6.5 % abv (alcohol by volume); 11 IBUs (International Bittering Units)

From the tap, two finger head. Not much on the nose, semi sweet, but I was expecting something richer and sweeter from a Scottish ale.

Poured from tallboy to glass. Aroma is caramel, smoke, sugar, plums, citrus, malt. Mouthfeel is really nice with light medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a slight okay atringent bitter following and dry finish. Overall, this is a great Scotch Ale.

Absolutely one of my favorite Montana brews. Pours a dark, almost opaque brown/copper with a thin tan head. Aroma’s of firm maltiness some toasty and almost light smoked notes as well. Beer is sweet but I like it. Good fit for the style. Some mild bittering to clean up the sweet toasty malt. Mouthfeel is rich and luscious. Medium-full bodied. Delicious!

16 oz can purchased at a gas station in Montana. Enjoyed from the can. The aroma is scotch, caramel malts, wood and light smoke. Similar flavor with a medium body and a creamy feel. Not bad.

On tap, Land of Magic, Logan MT. Pours a dark dark amber, looks black but is barely transparent. Thick white head with heavy lacing. Nose is coffee, malt, barley. Taste is think, not as heavy as it appears to be. Awesome beer here out of Missoula.
