This beer makes me want to turn on the William Wallace "Sons of Scotland" speech. That speech makes me want to run through a goddamn brick wall. Ipsa facto, Scotch Ale makes me want to run through a goddamn brick wall. Or at lease I'd run through a brick wall to get one.
Scotch Ale is smokey, smokey, smokey and really unique. It's brewed with 4 different malts. One of them a peat malt that is used in distilling scotch malt whiskey. That must explain it: I love scotch, I love beer. Combine the two and prepare for a party in your mouth. If you like malty beers give Scotch Ale a try. If you don't like malty beers don't drink it.
The bad news. I can't find it anywhere in the 303 except in the Brewmasters Collection. That's fine and all, most liquor stores have the Collection. But as much as I like variety sometimes I just want to suck down some Scotch Ale and watch hair grow on my chest.
Give it a try, but more importantly let me know where I can buy it in vast quantities.
