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.

Nice sweet belgian strong ale aroma, tons of esters here. Taste very similar, but a bit of maple syruppy sweetness. Dryness in finish, woody, and nutty.

Bottle from Brewdog Bar Aberdeen. It pours darkest brown (near black), with a foamy beige head. The nose is toffee, caramel, treacle, brown sugar, salted liquorice and chlorine. The taste is caramel, aniseed, malt vinegar, smoke, toffee, vanilla, salted liquorice, treacle and butterscotch, with a rich, sickly-sweet finish. It’s full bodied and has average carbonation. Interesting, but far too sweet for me.
