Sprecher Pipers Scotch-Style Ale

The Sprecher Brewing Company is in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was founded in 1985 by a former brewing supervisor for Pabst Brewing.

This 8.3% ABV beer is part of Sprecher's Premium Reserve line-up.  The beer pours a dark amber, and medium-dark orange brown in color.  There is a short, creamy head that is off-white to light brown in color.  The aroma is very smokey, peat, and peat-smoked barley.  The taste is malty, peaty, smokey, iodine brine.  If you like single malt scotch, then this is the island scotch of scotch ales, very peat smoked, intense, and not for everyone.

And speaking of Scottish pipers, here is something for your viewing and listening pleasure:
