More Smuttynose news this week. The brewery’s Big Scotch Ale is less than a month away. The 2013 release will feature a little variation, a blend of red wine barrel aged Scotch Ale.
The red wine blend should add an interesting complexity to an already bold beer. The brewery describes the base beer flavor as: …caramel and subtle roasted malt flavors, Scotch ales can feature smoky flavors (derived from a small measure of peated malt) or, more traditionally, no smoky flavor.
Look for this in 22oz bombers in mid-October.
