Scotch Ales have been around for a very long time. The stronger versions have been known to Ward off Fall’s early chill. Naughty Scot will not dissappoint. It’s malt forward and warming alcohol presence is perfect for a hearty meal or a long conversation

Mug Club served at the brewpub, and presented a clear, mahogany color, with creamy, off white head foam, and wavey cling to the lacing. The aroma was toasted, light roast, a bit of peat & smoke, touches of caramel and toffee sweetness, and a light hint of dark fruit. Medium bodied with decent carbonation, the flavor exhibited an initial smoothness to the mouthfeel, but lighter malt than the nose, moderate hop bitterness, and a crisp and rather dry finish. Definitely not a Scotch Ale, but a nicely sessionable, medium shilling, Scottish Ale, with a fairly hidden abv.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Lombard, IL). Pours a richer deep copper pour, some brownish elements with some glowing orange edges and bottom, amber driven, darker honey brown feel. Kiss of haze. Frothy offwhite head mellows to a firm ring, laces well. Aromas are mellow toasty and caramel. A bit of carmelization, biscuits, gentle vanilla. Touch of red fruit and earthy peat. Some pretzel, toast, mellow sweetness for a more firm body, smoothed out vanilla kisses. Initial is medium bodied, gentle sweetness, a touch toasty and carmelized. Gentle sweetness, bready, pretzel, middling grains. Touches of gentle red pit fruit, some smoothness, gentle warmth into the middle. A lighter body, not as sticky as expected. Some sweetness, toast, smooth backend and finish. Mellow and red fruit come in more at warms, a touch hot, some vanilla, dash of cough syrup at faint moments. Meh.
