Danish: Wee Heavy, Scotch eller Scottish Ale krt barn har mange navne. Med denne l har vi nsket at tage det bedste fra den britiske brygtradition tilsat en let krydrende kant af trverg for at opn den helt rigtige skotske stemning. Mange har spurgt os om vi rent faktisk bar kilt under brygningen af denne l. Well, bare fordi et sprgsml kan stilles, er det jo ikke sikkert, at det skal besvares! Men ja, der findes billeder. Og nej, de vil aldrig blive offentliggjort Hvis du er af den opfattelse, at britiske l generelt er flade og svage, s vil Smoking Scotsman overraske dig. Dette er en l, som br nydes i sm velafmlte slurke foran pejsen derhjemme p herresdet gerne med en stor tallerkenfuld haggis. Slainte!

English: Wee Heavy, Scotch or Scottish Ale to be honest we dont really care. We wanted to take the best of British brewing traditions and add a subtle edge of peaty smoke for that special Islay feeling. Many people have asked us if we took that feeling so far that we actually DID wear kilts during the brewing of this beer. Well, we honestly believe that not all questions necessarily need an answer. But yes, photos DO exist. And no, they shall never be revealed If you firmly believe that all British-style ales are low in alcohol and low in carbonation then Smoking Scotsman will prove you wrong. This is a beer to be savoured in small sips in front of a roaring fire back home at the manor preferably with a big plate of haggis. Slinte! or whatever.

Ingredienser: Vand, Malte: Pale, Special B, Crystal, Peated, Dehusked Chocolate, Humle: East Kent Goldings, Gr: Edinburgh Ale

Svesse (8286) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2016
(Bottle) Reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, slightly smoky nose with dried fruit (raisins, prunes), caramel, a touch of smoke, rye bread, some coffee and brown sugar. Malty, sweetish taste with notes of caramel, brown sugar, coffee, raisins, crisp-bread, a touch of smoke and a balanced spicy bitterness in a fairly sweet finish. Full body, quite sweet. Tasty and fairly sweet wee heavy with a gentle smoke touch. Nice one.

Way to sweet for my taste. Not malty complexity as I love in this style but just overly sweet. The aroma is also very sweet and lacks complexity. Extremely full bodied. The light smokiness adds a little balance but in the end it is just way too sweet.

Bottle split at Amager Brewery mini tasting, RBESG 15 day 3, thanks to Papsoe, 22/08/15. Hazed amber with a decent beige covering. Nose is malt forward, brown bread, fruit loaf, pinch of spice. Taste comprises more smoke character, sweet licks, toffee, candied fruit peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok for style, subtle smoke, perhaps a touch overly sweet.

It is very long since I have tasted scotch ale, but I have always loved this beer-type because of the rich malt flavor with lots of flavor notes. Smoking Scotsman disappoints me not quite, yet lacking a bit. The aroma is full of dark caramel and a little touch of smoked malt. The flavor is very sweet at first impression. It has a sweet taste of brown sugar thats just on the edge of being too much. Slightly smoky tang keeps just the edge that makes it familiar. The tastes of dark caramel and a bit of ripe berries. Malt character is a bit like wet forest with a little truffle bitter aftertaste. I had wanted a beer with a little less malt sweetness and a little more smoked malt, so the overly expensive price of nearly 60 Dkr. It will with no doubt be good for rice pudding (because of the sweetness), or just for enjoiment in front of the fireplace (which brewery suggest).

Batch 605. Meilleure avant 05.2016. Sur le coup jai trouv cette bire trs sucre mais avec le temps elle sest ouverte et a partag ses saveurs et sa complexit. Des saveurs de gteau aux fruits enrob dun alcool doux et une lgre fume dun cossais rvant dindpendance.

SlovakSniper (5393) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014
Batch 605. Meilleure avant 05.2016. Une robe ambre et une mousse beige qui reste colle. Un nez de caramel croquant et fonc avec une lueur de fume, des fruits confits et une touche de liqueur damandes. Un got bien malt et lgrement fum avec une pointe dalcool qui freine les dbordements sucrs. Cest loin dtre dsagrable. Un corps gnreux avec une texture huileuse et un ptillement modrment bas. Une finale qui nest jamais douce ni trop chaude, amre dalcool et de grains grills aux accents de caramel brl. Trs intressante lorsque bien tempre.
