COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlike the lighter "Scottish" ales, this is an authentic heavy Scotch ale. It is lightly hopped with a strong malt character, and a hint of peaty smokiness. Warm fermentation produces fruity esters and balances the sweet malt character.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2006
Bottled. Reddish amber colour, minor head. Aroma is hops and lots of fruits. Flavour is spices, caramel and dry fruits. While drinking there is a strong sweetish "sting" of something gingerlike. Too spiced in my opinion, but not that bad.

Theydon_Bois (20158) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Tap at Pike Pub & Brewery, Seattle - 09/11/12. Clear mid amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edge and forms a small pond. Nose is light caramel, ribena, smoke, dark malts. Taste is malt forward, incorporates light wood tones, toffee, dark sugars, puff of smoke. Medium bodied with light prickly carbonation. Drinkable for a style that doesn’t exist with a comedic (not) Scottish name! Would I order it again - nah!
