Style: Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Full Boar Scotch Ale is deeply malted and caramel apparent with overtones of chocolate and a slight hint of a mild, smoky flavor.

Our Full Boar Scotch Ale’s proprietary malt blend, lightly smoked with peat moss, imparts subtle hints of chocolate, caramel and smoke in a beer that drinks astonishingly smoothly.

First-Class chefs pair this Wee Heavy style ale with the finest cuts of meat, yet it has been infused into everything from artisanal cheeses to ice cream.

From an undated bomber. Pours a dark, nearly opaque brown with a finger of head. Has a sweet toasted malt smell. Light feel with very little carbonation. Chocolate and nut flavors with a sweet finish. Very drinkable, but not my favorite example of the style.

Pours a dark brown. Smells smoky almost burnt. Slight cocoa/coffee flavor. Heavy smoky taste, almost overbearing. Slightly sticky sweet. Got better as it warmed. Big fan of Scotch Ale, this one, not so much......

It is what you expect it to be, a good scotch ale meets smokey flavour. Which is good but the smokey flavour is a little overwhelming.

Dark brown pour, low carb, but the sweet caramel smoked grain bill makes it pleasant with to drink with meaty meals. Thin but has a good mouth feel and finishes clean.

Pours dark, yet a golden brown when held to light. Thin tan head that dissipates. It has a very interesting combination of flavors. Smooth caramel and chocolate with a striking smoky after taste. Very little hopes or carbonation to speak of. Overall one of the most uniquely rich non-stout beers I've had.
