COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For those of you who dont know who "Scotty Karate" is... He is a local one man band who plays an amazing slurry of honky tonk influenced, punk country songs. His voice is amazing as well as his high energy shows. (Check him out @ www.scottykaratetime.com) So, we decided to make a beer and name it in his honor. This beer is a big, full bodied Scottish ale. It is 9.75% alc. but it is very smooth and balanced. Since Scotty is also very passionate about beer I asked him to write a description for you, so from the man himself... Aroma: Smells like A fresh caramel apple with a hint of cinnamon inside of cranberry shortbread. Or maybe fresh home made hard candy (from home economics class-7th grade). Flavor: Tastes like a smokey chocolate chip cookie, wild roadside cherry-asparagus, woody, crispy leaf on a fall day.

good one really, on tap at The Hunt Club. This is about a year aged as an old season. Above average mouthfeel from a creaminess, with really chocolate coming through. A tad of roast, but I was not finding the smoke. Not what I would expect from a scotch, nevertheless pleasant.

Nice Scotch Ale. Strong, sweet, spicy and malty. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky. Vinous, fruity character to the malt. Cinnamon and spices in the finish.

Pours an expected dark brown, cloudy, with thin tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, and slight smoke. Flavor matches, but has surprisingly little complexity to it. Alotgether a very drinkable scotch ale, but nothing special.

Bottle from stfun... I think. Drank with a scotty karate, that I know... Poured into a pint glass, not much head, brown with a red tint. Malty aroma with some sugar? Taste is the same very malty, sugary, but not in bad way... sort of like a weeheavy... Average texture and carbonation level.... Overall a solid sipping beer, Thanks Josh for the hookup!

Bottle stowed away by nbutler11. Thanks Lt. Nose of caramel, sweet malt, very light milky chocolate, sugar. Flavor is the same and rich. Rather low on peat, which I like, though whatever they did use imparts a coppery twang right at the end. Still, very drinkable.

Thanks to Tyson for sending this one along Bottle poured into a snifter produced a finger worth of off white head that disappears quickly leaving no lace. The brew has a cloudy brown colored body. The aroma is very sweet, dark fruits and sweet malts hit my nose first. It is then followed by some nice peat and a smoky earthiness. The flavor follows the nose rather closely it is sweet and smoky. There is a good balance in it so one attribute doesnt overpower the other. The feel in my mouth is medium and there is almost no carbonation left in this brew at all. I didnt get to much heat from this either considering the ABV A rather nicely sippable Wee Heavy I would gladly drink it again Thanks again Tyson

Thanks to rustychiles for the share on this one. Pours a very turbid brown. Lots of haze and not much head. Aroma (depending on the glass) is either very malty and dripping with crystal malt (very similar to kilt lifter) or super smoky and charred smelling. Taste is smoky and caramelly. The aftertaste is (I shit you not) EXACTLY the same as barbeque pringles. Very weird and interesting.

Bottle courtesy of flossmoorbrewalum. Aroma is peat, caramel malts, smoke. Flavor is peat, smoke, caramel, faded hops. Finish is lingering with something almost bbq pringles like. Decent brew.
