What the Brewery Says: "Robust and Strapping, our Scotch Ale takes BIG Beers to a whole new level. Rich malt balances perfectly with delicate hops to provide a concentrated and intense flavor; an ideal companion for hearty foods, or as a meal unto itself. Allow this ale to warm slightly in your glass to enhance its truly bold character .Sharing is encouraged, as this is one beer that lives up to its name! Hey! No peeking!"
The beer pours a dark amber color and the smell is relatively nondescript with nothing remarkable (thought it could be my sinuses from this late spring weather we're having here in January).
Taste-wise, there are strong hints of caramel with every sip combined with only the faintest hint of bitterness. There is also a slight hint of citrus on the aftertaste. It was all very pleasant and very smooth; it was a nice drinkable beer while I enjoyed my night alone at home. Although it did lead to some kilt lifting shenanigans.
