Icelandic Wee Heavy
Viking history in Scotland goes back a thousand years. Even our brewmaster studied in Edinburgh, where he carefully surveyed the local brew. Now we return with an Icelandic Scotch Ale, brewed with locally farmed and smoked barley and spiced with native Icelandic angelica – a fabled herb ancient Vikings used as currency. Surrender your taste buds. They have no choice but to be conquered.
You are greeted by the rich color, creamy head, a sweet malt aroma and a hint of the smokiness delivered by the birch. The malty richness and caramel notes hit the tongue, with savory smoke coming later.
Perfect with grilled or roasted lamb, beef, and pork; smoked salmon, and aged or smoked cheeses. Transition to bread pudding, anything with chocolate and creamy fruit offerings. Or simply enjoy with a cigar and count your blessings.
