9.7% Old Ale
The initial aroma and taste has an obvious peaty smokey character. Not overwhelming at all, and quickly becomes integrated in the whole flavour experience. Once your palate has acclimatised to this big flavour, it quickly notices how complex the rest of the beer is, with all the specialty malts working together in harmony. The malt richness, full body, warming alcohol deliver a very special beer worth sipping and contemplation.
The ingredients are a marriage of the best quality English pale ale and special crystal and roasted malts, with the magic coming from the heavily heated distilling malt from Scotland.
