"This fine Ommegang ale uses heather tips and a wee bit of smoked malt to bring the taste and aroma of Scotland to the forefront."

Dark brown brew turns deep cherry red against a light. The head is a thick jiggly mass of tiny tan bubbles that builds from the very bottom of the glass to form a 3" tall tower of foam from a moderate pour. A significant portion of it lingers on the glass as it settles. The nose is very unique. I recognize the heather from the little anti-stink caplets that we put in the autoclave at a previous job (but here it is much nicer, and not for purpose of covering up bacterial odors). It has an attractive smooth warm spicy herbal floral aroma. Taste is similar to the smell on a pretty sour backbone, an interesting twist. Feel is very smooth, carbonation is soft, medium-bodied.
