Cleanly malty with a drying finish, perhaps a few esters, and on occasion a faint bit of peaty earthiness (smoke). Most beers finish fairly dry considering their relatively sweet palate, and as such have a different balance than strong Scotch ales.

November 10th - I’ve heard of Scottish Ales and Exports, but not the two combined. So I am curious when approaching this brew to see what it might tell me about the hybrid of this style. The nose is rich with caramel, even salted caramel, adding a sweetness and salinity found in the heart of all salt water taffies, but this time flavored with extra malt for depth and darkness of scent. The flavor is also rich in caramel, maybe even more so, but a but tangier too. I also have the chance to try the draft non-nitro version, which is much tangier, almost like an Indian yogurt, and sweeter too. The tang I like, the sugar is overbearing, but the nitro version is tasty, and a great drink for people like me who would buy anything if it was drizzled with a salted caramel sauce.

(En fût à la brasserie): Version nitro: Exactement ce que j’aime de ce style avec un vaste et intense spectrum malté avec des angles chocolatés intermittents. La texture moelleuse et confortable est superbement atténuée malgré la complexité des sucres, sécheresse saine également.
