Very peaty, very meaty!! Barbecue with smoky bacon, smoky duck, smoky venison and smoky sage sausages – I think you get the picture! Big and powerful on the palate neat with plenty of heat but at the same time, the sweetness and richness of burnt, charred malt, dark fruits, brown sugar and buttery caramel often found in very dark Scottish ale. Water added a briny, slightly oily aroma to the smoke – we added mackerels to the barbecue and they sizzled hot with plenty of ginger, garlic and black pepper. To taste now, a surprising sweet fruitiness of peaches and pears even a hint of vanilla but still with plenty of coastal smoke.
