Elk's Scotch Ale has the look and aroma of a classic wee heavy, one of my favorite styles. Living in GR, I drink (and enjoy) plenty of Dirty Bastard, but--gasp!--I actually like Elk's Scotch Ale slightly more. It's rich in flavor and smooth drinking, without alcohol burn or too much bitterness. Great job, Elk!
