COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 13th release in our 15 beers series was brewed in 1999. We found a shilling sitting on the counter of our homebrew supply store one day and had no idea how it got there. We joked around that it was a sign to brew a Scottish Ale because the strength of them are based on shillings. We soon came to realize we were meant to brew our version to be "one" more than the traditional 90 shilling

Slightly slippery feel in the mouth. A tiny bit of smokey peat. Something strange with the bitterness in the last drink from the glass, a little burnt. Other than that decent stuff. Serving: Bottle

Nice and balanced. Just make sure you start with it as the palate is not deep and the flavor does not extend outside of malt.

Dark copper pour with a light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and light smoke. Taste is roasted malt, caramel and a light smoke flavor in the body and in the aftertaste. Nice lacing.

Pours a deep copper brown color with a very small film head. Nose has a fantastic malt nose with some very light earthy hops highlights. Lots of marris otter malt kick, some light chocolate, light peat but overall a very smooth malty nose. Flavor has some light burnt caramel malt sweetness with a touch of chocolate to sweeten it up. Brew finishes with a slight acidic bite that really accentuates the hefty toasted malt finish. Body is modest with a lot of fine carbonation, making it feel slightly thinner. Overall a really good brew. Tons of rich malty flavor, fitting the style perfectly. Great candidate for a session evening with friends.

Purchased at Binny’s in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a Thursday night prior to leaving the country for two weeks. Appearance is a very dark, cola like brown, slightly clear, with a rich but creamy off white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is pretty faint, mostly malty, bit of caramel, but mostly smells crisp. Taste has a light bitterness and a malty finish, tastes like a ’session’ ale, not bad stuff but nothing exceptional. One of the lower ones of this 15 part Two Bros series.

Dark dark ale.... thick head. Sweet taste. Ive not had a scottish ale before but based on this im pretty impressed. I expected this to be a little bit nuttier but i was throughly impressed. I would drink this again.

On tap. Dark brown body with a small white head. The aroma is spot on for the style. Peated malt with some roast and caramel. Flavor is pretty smooth and finishes nicely. Decent.

22oz bottle 10/19/12 (Binny’s Downers Grove)-43° in English Pint- Beer pours dark amber with a small off white head. Aroma of roasted amlt, caramel, toffee, pine, and hops. Taste of malt, caramel, toffee, and hops. This light to medium bodied brew is well balanced and goes down quite easy. Nice job.
