COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Robust and strapping, our Scotch Ale takes BIG Beers to a whole new level.

Allow this ale to warm slightly in your glass to enhance its truly bold character. Sharing is encouraged, as this is one beer that lives up to its name! Hey! No peeking! Slainté!

This deep amber brownish beer has a pleasing malty aroma. Well rounded rich malt flavor hide how strong this beer really is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - OCT 20, 2013
FROM NOTES: June 28, ’12 22 ounce bomber bottle into a tulip. A: Caramel,graham crackers & vanilla. Complex. A: Pours bronze, almost copper colored with a little off-color white head and fair lacing. T: Chocolate and toffee. Ends with a pleasant floral hop aftertaste. P: A bit creamy, almost syrupy. An OUTSTANDING sipper. O: I love this style of beer and this is a very drinkable/sessionable scotch ale. I realize not everyone can/desires to session scotch ales so if you are looking for the best example of the style, this probably isn’t it. But if you are looking for a great tasting scotch ale, check it out.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 I guess Scotch Ales just aren’t for me since this appears to be one of the best and I just don’t like it. Strange because I like Scotch and I like beer. The hybrid just doesn’t do it for me.
