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.

Strong caramel taste and dry finish. It’s a good scotch ale but would benefit from a bit more body

The aroma carries some malt and a hint of peat. Unfortunately that is all overpowered by a bitter, almost rancid flavor. Not good at all.
