Imagine the Scottish Highlands, where the lovely green glens roll over the foothills with a serenity that's so heartbreakingly beautiful that it's almost bittersweet, and you'll have a sense of the merriment waiting for you in your pint. For how do you describe a strong ale of such beauty, with its locks of flowing brunette and chocolaty highlights and one simple purpose, which is to please? And like the mountains highlighting the horizon, this ale's immensity will impress you with its big, bright mouth of malt and the velvety smoothness of the kettle caramelization. And like the clouds pouring down the mountainside, you'll be impressed with the hints of roasted and nutty malts, the delicate kiss of smoke, and the comforting warmth of alcohol, as if you were warming yourself before a fire and admiring the majesty of the Scottish Highlands.
