Our single malt Scotch Ale is truly a big beer! We use one variety of malt, a portion of which was smoked at our brewery. It has a rich caramel and toffee fullness, balanced by a mild hop bitterness.

Had on tap at their place. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Flavor is curious. More bitter than a scotch ale and also has some umami flavor going on. Slightly salty. Interesting but tastes a bit off. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Draft… RBSG 2014This beer rocks!… Pours mostly clear and ruby with a small, creamy, off-white head that sticks around a good while. The bouquet is a wonderfully malty assortment of toffee, caramel and oak with a suggestion of smoked malt and a rumor of butterscotch. Medium to full-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is loaded with toffee and caramel sweetness, but countered by a equal ration of woody and tannic bitterness. Malty and delicious, but balanced, so anyone can drink it. Finishes pleasantly bitter and tongue-numbing. Fun, world class stuff!

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap @ Square One. Rich amber pour with a white head. Sweet caramel malt, some berry, raisin, and candied apple. A lot of sugary sweetness. Not much hop character. Flavor is just all sweet caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. A bit of toast, honey, and a slight fruity tang. Really one note.
