This Scottish strong ale (9% ABV, 25 IBUs) strays from convention. It's brewed with a large amount of malted barley and specialty grains, and a dash of smoked malt. It features semi-sweet flavors of cocoa and coffee, and a wee bit of smoke. It's a powerful, head-turning trip for malt heads and folks who think they don't dig dark beer.

Turned out just like McEwan's Scotch Ale. I used WLP002 English Ale yeast. Next time I will bottle this Ale as five gallons is a bit much to finish.
