COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Mungo has a sweet malt character achieved by boiling the “heavy” first runnings of the mash along with dark brown sugar to caramelize the sugars. This complex caramel character is accented by a faint smokiness in the finish. English East Kent Golding hops round out this extremely drinkable, full-bodied ale. Served unfiltered.
IBU 18 ABV 9% O.G. 22.5º Plato
Our "wee heavy" scotch ale recipe name in honor of Glasgow’s Patron Saint - St. Mungo. Saint Mungo established a religious brotherhood in Glasgow in 540 AD. One of the brothers started brewing to supply his fellow monks, establishing brewing as one of the oldest industries in Glasgow. Since Max’s St. Mungo has come in at approximately 9% ABV, we have declared it a "90 Shilling" Scotch Ale. And in keeping with our Drink Beer Do Good campaign, Fifty Cents of every St. Mungo sold will be contributed to the Gateway Center for the Homeless and the Atlanta Union Mission.

Kinz (3365) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2010
The only new thing they had when I dropped by this week - the hoppy beer wasn’t ready quite yet. Pours a deep reddish amber, nice tan head. Aroma was caramel and dark fruits. Flavor matched - rather sweet and fruity. Hint of smokiness was very, very faint. Some earthy hops were rather clear on the finish as well. A bit too hoppy and fruity for my preference, but not a bad brew.

Cask at ACAT 2010. This was a highlight for me at the festival not due to any sort of wacked out technique or oak aging but just for a solid to style scotch ale. Quality scotch ales are hard to find. Floral, fruity aroma with a bit of sugar. Flavor has a lot of toasted grain and bread. Caramelized onion sort of sweetness in the flavor adds an interesting texture and character.
