What happens when you take a rich, complex scotch ale and age it on American white oak? Fat Woody is created. Smooth vanilla notes intertwine with subtle smokiness and bold malt character in this big brother to our Fat Scotch Ale.

Beerona97 (2398) - Washington, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Bottle pours dark brown with lighter mahogany edges, thin beige head. Aroma of bready malts, some dark fruit, some light citrus, wood. Taste is much better than the regular Fat, it’s doesn’t seem as sweet because of the slight woody bitterness. There is a light roast character to this, but it’s mostly sweet dark fruit and malt. Great texture, full yet soft carbonation.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2011
22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with riversideAK. Pours brown that allows no light to pass through except for the edge with a moderate tan head that barely lasted two sips and left light lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel, malt, peat and some noticeable alcohol vapors. The flavor is caramel, malt, peat, and oak with some moderate alcohol warmth at the finish. Medium bodied.
