Scotch Silly

Type: scottish style ale
Origin: Silly, Belgium
Price: $9.99 per 750 mL
ABV: 8%
NSP: 6

Scottish ales are not my normal go to as I think most are boring and off-putting. This one however made me not care about my prior scotch ale disposition. For one, it's from the Silly Brewery, which is well, silly. Secondly, I was wondering how the belgians would pull off a scotch ale. And let me start by saying that I am pleasantly surprised with this one. There are background notes of traditional scotch ale layered nicely on a light belgian dubbel. There is a slight cola(I think) flavor lingering around and some hazelnuts.

On second inspection, I change my review to overbearing. This beer gets a bit overpowering, and is not easy to drink. Definitely drink with a friend, or don't drink at all. I don't know how I'm going to get through this, but I'm sure I'll survive.
