This is a big beer with a slightly smoky flavor (resulting from the use of “peated malt”). Target bittering hops are used to balance the residual sugars and Willamette hops are our finishing or “aroma” hops. This fine winter brew comes in at slightly over 7% alcohol so treat it with respect, and enjoy!

5/06/2010: The People’s Pint McShagger’s Double Ewe Scotch Ale... Aroma: Hard candy; cola-like; water; scorched. Appearance: Deep reddish brown color with a thin beige-colored head. Flavor: Watery caramelized malts and sugar; very weak undertones of peak; scorched/burnt finish. Palate: Medium-bodied; smooth, but a bit thin for the style. Overall: Disappointing; not to style; not good.

Solid, thick off-white head. Equally thick lace on the glass. Dark brown color but light does shine through. Impressive chocolate aroma. Slightly chalky. The chocolate shows up strong in the taste. If I were blindfolded, I would guess that this is a porter as it has all of the characteristics. This is a dry beer. The body, while full, is not at all syrupy. There is also some notable hop bitterness albeit in the background. The aftertaste is closer to dry cocoa.

Brown pour with a creamy tan head and lace. Light caramel malt with an off kinda chemical aroma. Caramel and abv flavor. A tad foamy and thin. A drinkable beer but just not spot on.

Bottle or growler (don’t remember) Brownish pour with a tan head. Slightly infected aroma- tartish notes over caramel and diacetyl. Sweet flavor with mixed notes of caramel, butter (diacetyl) and tart infected papery notes. Pretty off.

Bottle shared at the Smoke from the Oak release, labeled as People’s Pint McShagger’s Double Ewe Scotch Ale. Pours a hazy brown with a beige to tan head. Aroma is piles of molasses with some roast malt. Sweet caramel on a medium thick body. Finishes with a light hop bitterness.

This was my first scotch ale so I did not know what to expect, so take this reveiw with a grain of salt. Has a very dark brown color and a sweet smell. Taste is sweet with some roasted flavor to it. It finishes smooth with slight bitterness. Overall I did not like this beer too much because of the sweetness in both the smell and taste. It just did not seem to mix well.

Very sweet and slightly smoky; earthy and coniferous. Lots of caramel, very toasty and warming; grainy but soft mouthfeel; the mix of hot buttered/caramel/pecan popcorn from Garretts popcorn shop on the corner of Adams and State in Chicago. Yum.
