The Scotch Ale is typically associated with the Wee Heavy designation, meaning greater than 6% ABV. This Scotch Ale is rich and malty with caramel flavors. Historically, Scotland imported hops from England and they were heavily taxed. As such, the Scotch Ale style typically has IBUs in the low to mid 20s. To enhance the flavor further, we have barrel-fermented this beer in Woodinville Whiskey barrels. This is a strong beer, so sip slowly and savor the caramel-like qualities of this full-bodied beer. If you like, pretend you're staring out over a drizzly Scottish countryside and say Wee Heavy out loud a few time to get into character.
