Old Smoky Scots Ale

OG = 1.052  FG = 1.015 IBU = 18  SRM = 18  ABV = 5% Ingredients: 1/2 lb. (0.23 kg) dark crystal malt (80 °L) 1/4 lb. (113 g) peat-smoked malt 1/4

This is not a brew for the faint of heart. The combination of smoke flavor (especially if peat-smoked malt is used) and pepperiness is very enjoyable and provides a great counterpoint for the richness of the Scots ale style. Carbonation is low to further emphasize the body. This is a slow fireside sipping beer.
