COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big Sound Scotch Ale is dedicated to our good buddy Gino, the most punk rock bagpiper you’ll ever meet, and the rest of the men and women of Tampa Bay Pipes and Drums. Brown in color, Big Sound has huge notes of dark sweet toffee with underlying mild notes of coffee in the aroma. The flavor starts with a slight note of cherry and then opens into a Goliath of a malt character with notes of dark sweet toffee, slight hints of coffee and mild notes of toasted bread in the finish. Big Sound Scotch Ale pairs well with Haggis, Highland Games, Huge Heads and Enormous Pillows and of course Bagpipe music.

Tasting at Papsø
Cloudy brown color. Common aroma, some caramel and chocolate, mild, light alcohol. Ordinary body, with some chocolate flavor, a bit dusty, and showing a bit too much the alcohol. Ordinary bitterness. Boring caramel/chocolate beer.

mcberko (17847) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and a small tan head. Aroma is very deep, with scotch, wood, toffee and caramel malts, and some dark fruits. Flavour is quite sweet, with toffee, sweet caramel and lots of sweet dark cherries. Not much of the scotch on the flavour, just a lot of rich caramel and highly sweet notes without being cloying. Very enjoyable slow sipper.

Murky chestnut with a light head. Earthy nose is toffee and caramel richness. Soft, full, rich mouthfeel. Soft, chewy toffee notes, very sweet and lush. Hints of peat and wood. Well-balanced.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle, 75cl. A small, beige head forms and disappeares in a few seconds, with a more or less clear, dark reddish brown body underneath. Lightly bretted nose with dried fruits, caramel, some roasted hints and coffee. A bit too well carbonated, full to medium body, quite dry. Some residual sugars though, making sure it’s not too dry. Raisins, caramel, some generic dried fruits, coffee hints and sweetness. Hmm, I don’t think the funk is intended, it’s sure delicious in this way though, really delicious. A fine beer indeed. 111112
