Brave Liver Scotch Ale – Mt. Begbie Brewing Company

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.

Best served in a Thistle glass at 10-13c.
