From the website:

"This sweet and earthy traditional Scotch Ale utilizes Bavarian Rauch malt to provide beech wood smokiness. Not too much, just right. Please enjoy this Scotch Ale offering and “ get a little wobbily.”. Indeed.

ABV 7.0% Hops: Challenger, Willamette"

Label says 7.2%

22 picked up today at Bier Thirty for $7... Poured tonight into my slim tulip... long lasting tannish head atop a walnut colored brew... nice lacing for the entire glass.

Nose shows a bit of the (as promised) Bamberg malt... Not as malty as many Scotch ales for sure, there is a background dark toast and caramel... I think the smoke masks the malt profile a bit too much.

Flavor mirrors the aroma... smoke (although lighter than expected) starts and finishes this beer with a bit of malty sweetness mid-late palate that helps carry the palate.

Body and carbonation are right for the style... Medium/full body with a light/medium carbonation.

Personally, I don't care for smoked beers too much.. but that is my issue not the brewer's. However, the Bamberg malt is a little over the top and out of place in a Scotch ale... IMO, it should be toned down a bit.


Edit: I entered this as a Wee Heavy... If somebody wants it changed down the road to a smoked beer, then feel free to ask for a change... My feelings won't be hurt.
