Product details

Karl Engebretson (whom many of you know through our catalog covers and ads in BYO and Zymurgy) is a certified Giant Norwegian with a taste for similarly-proportioned beers.

We have found he has a way with Scottish ales, and this is his 90 /-. Somewhere in between an 80 /- and a Wee Heavy, ninety also refers to the length (in minutes) of the boil. This additional time spent on heat intensifies the beer color and adds depth and breadth to its malt profile. Pouring garnet-amber with long legs, the nostrils are bathed in boozy praline, piloncillo sugar, pecan, and resonating malt.

Smooth

Tried this brew for St. Patty's day.. great choice ! Although it is a heavier beer it is a very smooth beer. Great mouth feel and no strong after taste. Carmel is present but not overwhelming.
Some problem with carbonation. Be sure to pick up some extra yeast off the bottom when getting ready to bottle. This should ensure good carbonation.

This is the first time I'm brewing this kit, and it is outstanding. I can compare to some Belhaven Scottish Ales that I've had on tap at a local Scottish pub and this tastes like those imported draft beers. One thing to note is that when I ordered the kit, it was mid-summer and I didn't want the liquid yeast transported in the heat across the whole country. So I opted to buy the yeast at my local homebrew shop. They didn't have the Wyeast strain that is recommended in the kit, so I used Imperial Tartan liquid yeast, which is an equivalent Scottish ale yeast strain. I've never had a fermentation start so quickly and vigorously. Very potent yeast. I brewed the extract batch, 2 weeks in primary, 2.5 weeks in secondary, then kegged with priming sugar and keg conditioned for 3 weeks at room temp before chilling to serving temperature. At first taste it was a bit raw and needed time to mature. Now it has been in the keg 6 weeks and it is really smoothing out. It is nice and malty, dark, rich complex flavor, and very drinkable. I'll be making this one again for sure.
