Viborg Scottish Ale is true to the style with itís slightly smoked malty caramel flavor and a buttery after taste that is especially pronounced because itís brewed using an open fire in the old Scottish tradition. Because of the 7,6% alcohol itís classified as a Wee heavy. For food Scottish Ale is nice with fish. Top fermented and cellared in 6 weeks.

Bottled. Sourish aroma with spices and butterscotch. I even thought that there was a hint of vinegar in the aroma. Deep red/brown color, beige head, good lace. Bit fruity, dried dark fruits, light sweet, light bitter, fruity sourness but no vinegar in the flavor. Lacks a bit of body and even flavor. Had it on tap as well but didnít make any notes then. I remember it being better than the bottled version. Thanks to Dalle for getting this for me!

Bottle. Pours dark amber with red tones - no head to speak of. Aroma has a little bit of berries - and sadly some metallic tones as well. Flavour is better - some fruityness expanding with some sweet caramel - not much bitterness.
