Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy

The Scotch Ale is overwhelmingly malty, with a rich and dominant sweet malt flavor and aroma. A caramel character is often part of the profile. Some examples feature a light smoked peat flavor. This style could be considered the Scottish version of an English-Style Barleywine. Overly smoked versions would be considered specialty examples.

ABV: 6.6-8.5% | IBU: 25-35 | Glassware: Tulip
