Big Sky Brewing Co. Heavy Horse Scotch Ale

From the Big Sky brewery of Missoula, Montana.

This beer comes in at 6.7% ABV and pours a dark to medium brown to dark ruby in color.  The aroma is sweet, heavy malt with a bit of port wine.  The alcohol is apparent.  The mouthfeel is very pleasing, smooth and creamy.  The taste is nutty, roasted malt, not nearly as sweet as the aroma.  There is just enough hops to provide balance but the malts predominate.  There is a touch of alcohol apparent at the finish.  The aftertaste is nutty and pleasing.  This is a nice, strong Scotch style ale.
