Black Isle Brewing Organic Scotch Ale
Black Isle Brewing Organic Scotch Ale is a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy, 7.9% ABV. I picked this up on super sale at one of our local Habersham Beverage Warehouse locations for $2.99. It seems to be just out of date with a best by of 09/15.
The beer pours with a dark brown color with copper red tones around the edges, big tannish head. Nice aroma of brown sugar and raisins, rich and malt forward. Best by date be damned, this is still tasting good to me! Dark and slightly charred grain, brown bread, cooked raisins, mild toffee, a slight nuttiness and just a bit of black coffee are found in the taste. The finish brings in a little spicy hop bite and an overall dryness needed to combat all that rich sweetness in the aroma and taste. This is some fine beer for the the cooler Fall weather.
It might not be $2.99 if you can find it where you live (I think the original price here was $5.99), but it is worth a try whether it is on sale or not!
