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.

On tap at the source. Served in a snifter. Poured a clear amber with a thin beige ring for a head. Light brown sugar, caramel malt nose. Some dark fruit. Flavor is sweet, but not what I expected. Body was also lighter than expected. On their beer menu this was listed as a Scotch ale, so I was expecting more flavor and more body. Not bad, just not what I was hoping for.

Plum and raisin scents, sweet malty overtones. Deep black in color. Small head poured from 12 oz bottle. Initial taste is burnt sugar and caramel which quickly subsides into a malty whiskey aftertaste that clings to the tongue. The lingering effects of sip after sip leaves a tingle on the tongue similar to scotch whiskey. Very different mouthfeel and very welcomed during colder months. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
