Samuel Adams Scotch Ale

The Samuel Adams line of beers are from the Boston Brewing Company of Boston, Massachusetts. This is a 5.5% ABV ale that uses four different malts, including a peat smoked malt used in Scotch whiskies. 

The beer pours a dark amber and ruby in color. There is a short head of light tan head. The aroma is smokey peat, dark fruits, sweet caramel malt. The taste follows the aromas, very smokey and peaty, with dark fruits and caramel of generous malting. The finish is lightly bitter, and more dry than sweet. The beer drinks with a somewhat intense, fine, carbonation.
