Keweenaw Olde Ore Dock Scottish Ale

The Keweenaw Brewing Company is in South Range, Michigan, in the upper peninsula. This beer is aged with American Oak.

the beer pours a deep copper in color, burnt orange, dark iced tea. There is a short lived head of off-white, somewhat creamy, foam. The aroma is malty, caramel, sweet potatoes, lightly burnt sugar. The taste is malty, lots of caramel, a bit roasted and nutty, sweet at first, then the darker roasts and nut notes take over and bring the sweetness to a gentle finish. I think the oak helps this as well. It is easy to drink, refreshingly carbonated, medium bodied. If you like deeply malty beers, you will want to try this.
