Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of the classic ale that originated in Glasgow, Scotland. A full-body ale, rich in malt complexity. Brewed with both English and American barley and many, many specialty malts allowing hints of roasted chocolate, caramel and raisins with very little hop presence.

Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly

You get Carmel, coco, toffee, molasses, and some toasted malts.

The taste is more malt forward than I expected. Toasted malts up front followed by some mild Carmel, toffee, molasses and coco notes.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall, I think this is a very solid scotch ale. Might not be my favorite scotch ale I have had but still there is nothing bad I can really say about it.
