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

Bottle. Dark brown with small head. Aroma smoked whiskey notes, malt. Taste malt, spices and some whiskey notes nice long lasting finish. I certainly found this one nice. It seems like there´s been some problems in the beginning, but it´s certainly recommendable now.

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Bottled (backlog, bought during my cartrip to Jylland). Nutbrown colour with some amber hints, mediumsized creamy off-white head. Aroma is toffee, some leathery notes along with mild toasted things. Flavour has a similar base, but also there’s some ripe fruits, mild toffee, toasted nuts and a bit resiny notes. Alcohol is well hidden.
