Beer: MacKroken

Brewer: Le Bilboquet

Scotch Ale brewed with honey, 10.8%

Bought it because honey and scotch ale. Duh.

 

 

This is a deep burned caramel colour, but clear! And red undertones. There`s hardly any foam and what`s there dissipates pretty quickly.

Oooooh it smells like fresh honey and something like prunes a bit. Promises of sweet, sweet goodness.

The brewery`s website says it compliments salty cheeses very well, and I happened to have an aged espresso cheddar so… don`t I feel fancy? Oh my, this is indeed quite honeyed. But also bitter? It`s a weird mix but I like it. Very smooth and thick. The aftertaste has a bit of an alcohol-ish bite.

I like it! It definitely does go well with the cheese I have here, though I honestly couldn`t tell you if it enhances anything.

This is sweet, bold, and strong! Get it!
