USA | Scotch Ale | 10.20%
If you’ve been with us at Beer Days for a while you’ll know we get a little over excited when we start talking about Scotch Ales. This is no exception.
Rated in the top 1% of all beers in Rate Beer, it’s not for the faint hearted. Aged in oak bourbon barrels, it’s alcoholic and it lets you know about it. Little attempt is made to mask the 10.2% nasal dominating aroma. Once you’ve accepted that, it’s all about the scotch, bourbon and malt nose. So much happens once you first swill it - malt, caramel, bourbon, earthiness and more bourbon.
Do not operate heavy machinery for a few weeks after one of these!
