COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlike the lighter "Scottish" ales, this is an authentic heavy Scotch ale. It is lightly hopped with a strong malt character, and a hint of peaty smokiness. Warm fermentation produces fruity esters and balances the sweet malt character.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2006
Bottled. Reddish amber colour, minor head. Aroma is hops and lots of fruits. Flavour is spices, caramel and dry fruits. While drinking there is a strong sweetish "sting" of something gingerlike. Too spiced in my opinion, but not that bad.
