Broken Tooth Beam Me Up, Scottish
More sophisticated than Klingon Bloodwine and less illegal than Romulan Ale, these savory suds will delight any proper starship engineer on shore leave. Plenty of rich roasty malt flavors with a dash of peated malt? Aye! Spicy refined hop character from Hallertau and Fuggles? Aye! Beam a pint down and boldly go where no one has gone before! Aye aye sir!
Scottish ales are generally dark, malty, full-bodied brews. Many examples have a hint of smokiness derived from the use of peated malt. 60, 70, and 80 shilling examples are all session ales under 5% abv, but the stronger "wee heavies" can range closer to 8%, with the accompanying increase in alcohol flavour and esters. Works well as an accompaniment to hearty meat and game dishes, sharp cheddar, atholl brose and shortbread.
