The Scotch Ale was the first seasonal release from Fury & Son back in winter 2016. It's returned since, with the peated smoke and Islay whisky like character increasing from that debut in the following year's release, while remaining thick, sweet and awash with treacle like flavours underneath.
It's been a while since we last made acquaintance with the beer and plenty of others have passed our way in that time but, if memory serves correct, the winter 2019 edition seems to lean even more into smoky territory. There's more of a leathery, woody, campfire nature to the smokiness too, less of the western Scottish isles, while the underlying sweetness appears to have been reined in a little two. Thus it's leaner and drier and awaiting those who favour surviving winter with a smoky sipper and comfy slippers.
