COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A big rich and malty Scotch ale featuring a robust flavor but with a smooth mouth feel. Generous amounts of caramel malts and kettle caramelization contribute to the rich malty flavor balanced out with just the right amount of imported hops.

Fat Scotsman Ale is a tribute to the Scottish Lockhart Clan who emigrated from Scotland to Lake George region in the early 1800’s.

Tatsy ale with a small head. Dark color & nice aftertaste. Seems to be a good brew with foods as well as alone. Good choice for a nice ale.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of some light smoke, caramel, some sweet malty undertones. Tastes full bodied with some light peaty hints, sweet caramel, and a nice spicy finish.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark brown color with hints of red, a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet berries and caramel, alcohol heat hits you. The aroma is very robust almost pushing toward some of the fruity malt driven Belgian Ales or a Barley Wine. The flavor is very nice; sweet nutty and fruity malts, toffee, loads of sweetness here, hefty, a big brew! This is a hell of a Summer seasonal. Very much dominated by sweet sugars and dark fruity malts. Very good. Quite hot.

On Tap at Brewery. Dark amber/brown color with a thin head of cream. Aroma is a touch smoky, which is a good sign for me. I like a bit of smoke in my scotch ales. Flavor is a quick burst of sweetness that is quickly tempered by a good dose of smoked peat. Good quality scotch.
