BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States

Style: Scottish Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.60%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Belgian-Scotch brewing connection dates to WWI, when thousands of Scotsmen spent years in Belgium. To satisfy the new customers, Belgian brewers learned to brew lighter "Scotch" style ales. This fine Ommegang ale uses heather tips and a wee bit of smoked malt to bring the taste and aroma of Scotland to the forefront. "Malty, full body, dark, slightly smoky, with heather notes. Flavorful and aromatic, with a gentle complexity and easy-going finish."

A - Pours an incredibly murky dark brown with touches of dark ruby. Forms a half finger of quickly dissipating light tan head.
S - Literally smells like you mixed a high quality Belgian tripel or quad with a scotch ale.
T - Exactly as it smells.
O - A damned good and interesting take on the scotch style. V - Good.
