COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, - 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.

Cybercat (4639) - Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Pours barely translucent sepia with a thin light tan head. Aroma delivers caramel, woody and toasted malt notes. Flavor echoes the aroma, though not as sweet. Mouthfeel has thin body but good fizz. Don’t get angry, have a snort.

Bomber. Nice chocolate nose, caramel, touch of smoke. Glowing brown-red color. Malty flavor, some smoke and roast, fudge. bitter, hoppy finish. Very light bodied and a bit too carbonated.

UXO (1257) - CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Pours clear brown with one finger of light beige head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is muted, burnt dark malt, coffee, treacle, oak. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering mild bitter finish. (3/5) Fairly unremarkable wee heavy. It’s an OK interpretation, but not good enough to overcome my ambivalence towards the style. Maybe that’s a touch unfair, but I actually have had ones that did succeed in doing so, so… (12/20)

exeter (488) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2015
Pours clear and dark brown but see through. With a 1 inch head that becomes an edge hugger with spotty lacing. The taste is roasted malts, dark fruit, booze, oak and vanilla. A very good mixture, would have again.
