A wee angry scotch ale is part of the Russell Brewmaster Series: a succession of small batch beers that push taste boundaries and explore new styles of beers. This beer has been brewed with a blend of Scottish specialty malts in the style of a 19th century 90 Shilling Scotch Ale - a strong, dark ale with a dominant malt accent that originated in Edinburgh. This batch of beer was brewed by Jack Bensley, Eric Dubuc and Anders McKinnon, Russell Brewing Company 2010.

My new favourite. Not one to quaff after cutting the grass on a hot summer day. More of a winter ale. Delightful. roasty, caramel, resin, floral, smoke,

Lagerboy (1936) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
Dark amber with a quickly disipating tan head, aroma of sweet malts, full roasty caramel malty taste with a bit of fruit, medium carbs, nice balanced hop finish. No wonder this is an award winner!

Pours a beautiful dark brown with a slight reddish hue. Appearance would be perfect, but the head is a little too sparse. Aroma is full, malty. Taste is heavy malts, finishing with a roasted malt flavor. Feels light in the mouth which is surprising considering the full taste. Very good.

Bouteille 650 ml. 6.5%. Vancouver. Couleur brune foncé, reflet roux, mousse beige. Arôme de malt, un peu de caramel, de bois. En bouche, un peu de fumée, alcool, malt, caramel. Finale un peu houblon, fumée, alcool. Excellente...j’ai vraiment aimé cette bière, pas trop froide. Du bonbon !

Pours good and dark with tan head but that falls away. Neutral aroma. Good chocolate and coffee flavours following through

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 10, 2010
Poured a clear brown capped with a thin tan head. Aroms was mild (weak?), maybe some malt, but it was not easy to tell. Taste wsa a lot of malt, too sweet to start, but easing off at it progressed; also, there was a hint of "burnt" to go along with the coffee or dark chocolate at the finish. Solid mouth. This got better at the temperature rose.

I really enjoyed this one... I think it’s the ashy mouthfeel that does it for me. Or maybe because Scotch ales are all too often cloying, and this one struck the perfect balance for my taste. I have a love affair with nuts too and this one of course reminded me of that (don’t tell my SO). Kept it at the back of my fridge way too long.
