I was pleasantly surprised with this offering. Poured into a chilled mug; rich dark amber brown color. This was pleasingly smooth with up front hints if caramel with more hops at the end. Also, this didn't feel overly heavy. Many scotch ales are a one beer night (for me anyway), I would happily drink a few of these and not feel overpowered. So, good balance. Definitely give this beer a try.

A little sweet for my tastes but that is not a fault. I like the complex flavor but at 7.6% ABV this one can sneak up on you.

Bancreagie Peated Scotch Ale pours clean, brilliant reddish chestnut, under a 1” off-white foam cap that is moderately persistent. On the nose is roast barley, a dash of peat smoke, malt spice and a suspicion of fruit. Smoke and banana emerge more on the palate with kettle sugars and a dash of caramel. The beer is smooth with a medium full body and moderate carbonation.
