Taste Notes: This is a "rough" interpreation of two of my favorite things in the world. Old Chubb (Strong Scottish) form Oskar Blues and my favorite Scotsman...Stuart Mackenzie (So I married an Ax murderer...possibly Mike Myers best movie charecter).
I just tried this beer last night and I am super happy with it. I want my Strong Scottish to be the opposite of an IPA.....Let the Malt come forward and steal the show. With this beer I think I accomplised the task.
