    After trying and loving most all of these listed, (DB being my fave still), i didn't see my new fave.....
    Kuhnhenns A Few Shillings Too Many. Find it and try it, a ridiculous beer.

    Yes, I loved MacAndrews. When I was in Scotland in 2000, I had Edinburgh Strong Ale (the Caledonian beer that MacAndrews was the bottle version of) on cask at the Bridge of Orchy Hotel. Absolutely fantastic. I spent five year tweaking my homebrewed Scotch Ale to replicate it. I think I'm just about there...[​IMG]

    I too love the fact that we are talking about something outside the norm. I get so tired of hearing people wet themselves over Pliny. I love a good Scotch Ale/wee heavy. Skull splitter is good, but the Founders beers and Arcadia take it for me.

    And months after its special release, you can still pick up a bottle of the BA Wee Heavy from their tasting room. Why this one didn't sell out is one of those mysteries in life I will never understand.
