WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Don't be fooled, deceptively strong
Impressive in smaller doses. Lighter of colour and taste than most in the scotch ale range. It's stronger than it tastes.
Not for the faint of heart.
....And definitely not a session beer. This is a special beer to be savoured the way it is brewed, in small batches. Very easy to drink as it does not taste like a very high strength beer.
