Default Safale S-33 for Scotch Ale?

I'm planning to brew a strong Scotch ale next weekend. Usually, I use an appropriate liquid yeast for my brews. However, given the high OG for this style, it would be much easier to use a couple packages of Safale than make a humongous starter. AHBS offers Safale S-33 as an option with their Scotch ale kit, so I was thinking of trying this yeast. Is it appropriate for a Scotch ale?

I've been wondering this too. I ended up with a packet of it and I haven't figured out what to do with it. NB says scotch ale, and I've come up with strong belgians in searches.

Brew a Scottish Ale or Irish Red first to get a nice fat WLP028 yeast cake, then pitch onto that!
