Commercial Description
Rich, malty flavors of caramelized and toasted grains dominate this strong Scotch ale. A hint of rye adds a crisp, Scotch-like, old-world beer character, reminiscent of a simpler life from centuries ago. “It is a wee bit heavy”

    A Scottish "90/-" ale. Brewed only once a year, this ale is rich and full with a dryness that is beautifully balanced with a classic malt sweetness.

    pours an alluring mahogany and the nose is straight up boozy.

    That is rather pronounced in the flavor, as well, and there is no attempt to mask the 8.2% ABV. Sweet malt, caramel, vanilla, and whiskey come through. Not much hops character at all, just like this style should be.

    I really like what Hoppin’ Frog has done here. Big flavors, true to the style, a very high quality beer. I have had four beers from Hoppin’ Frog, and all have been very good to great.
