From Mt. Begbie Brewing Company in Revelstoke BC comes their “Brave Liver Scotch Ale” a beer that has only been bottled for the first time this year. The beer pours a dark brown colour with red hues and an off white head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, caramel, hint of fruit and a sweet finish. The flavour is of earth, caramel, dark fruits, a hint of peat. The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 22. This is not a style I know all that well but I did quite enjoy this bottle.
