Devil's Canyon Brewing Company Full Boar Scotch Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Devil's Canyon Brewing Company Full Boar Scotch Ale. I had a chance to try this beer on tap, enjoyed it, so I thought I should review it.
From the Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company website: “Full Boar™ Scotch Ale is deeply malted and caramel apparent with overtones of chocolate and a slight hint of a mild, smoky flavor.
Our Full Boar Scotch Ale’s proprietary malt blend, lightly smoked with peat moss, imparts subtle hints of chocolate, caramel and smoke in a beer that drinks astonishingly smoothly.
First-Class chefs pair this Wee Heavy style ale with the finest cuts of meat, yet it has been infused into everything from artisanal cheeses to ice cream.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights with a foamy beige head and spotty lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate, caramel and roasted malts, nutty, peat smoke, toffee and molasses.
Taste: Sweet caramel malt, roasted and bready malts, bittersweet chocolate, nutty and smoky.
Overall: Tasty, sweet and balanced, Devil's Canyon Brewing Company Full Boar Scotch Ale is enjoyable. At 7.4% ABV this Scotch ale is one to try for those who enjoy the style. Don’t take my word for it. I shared this 22 with my wife and she enjoyed it a lot. Good on tap and in bottles.
