Having Jonathan/morticaixavier's Scotch ale .
Beautiful dark plum body, clear with garnet highlights when held to the light. Hints of dark dried fruit in the aroma, no hop. Richly malty.
The aromas carry into the flavor - rich chewy malt but not cloying. Almost a hint of cherry in the finish. Enough bitterness to keep it from falling over the malt cliff. Slight warming but not alcoholic.
My god, I can only hop my wee heavy scheduled to brew in January turns out anything like this - I am cherishing the remainder of my snifter.
Would love the recipe.
