COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich malty flavors of caramelized and toasted grains dominate this robust Scotch ale. A hint of rye adds a crisp, scotch-like, old-world beer character, reminiscent of a simpler life from centuries ago. It’s a wee-bit heavy.

ciocanelu (2536) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - DEC 18, 2015
Dark amber color with light brown head. Aroma has booze soaked raisins, figs, dates and other dark fruits. Taste is somehow sweet and slightly tart with dried figs and caramel up-front. Body is quite light and effervescent. Really nice dark fruit notes but the alcohol is a bit too present for my taste.
