Bagpipe Warrior Scotch Ale - Laphroaig (2019)
Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy
This is INTENSE. Boozy caramel malts that give way to a smoky flavor so strong you think you just ate a cigar. Maybe if I liked peaty scotch this would be more my jam.

It tastes exactly as it’s states. Really different. The peat really shows both in the nose and flavor. Well done. Not a volume drink.

Intensely smokey but it has a molasses sweetness to it. Damn fine brew, but if you don't like heavily peated Scotch this likely isn't for you.

Strong Smokey flavor coupled with the Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy. Very peaty as well. This ale aged well in the Laphroaig barrels. This is a beer made for a high end steakhouse to be paired well with a filet or a ribeye. I think burgers will also pair well!
