The Salty Scot comes from Parallel 49 Brewing Company as a winter seasonal. This Sea Salted, Caramel Scotch Ale pours into the glass a chestnut-brown colour with two full fingers of dense and lacing head. From the Salty Scot comes an aroma of caramel, oak and a sweet, big bodied Scotch Ale. The big aroma forecasts a strong, and full flavoured winter seasonal. The body is relatively big with a mild flavour given the expectation. A light oakiness lingers over the taste experience as a smooth, vanilla-caramel flavour takes charge of the palate. A fairly strong sweetness is joined by a briny-salt infusion to intensify the flavour and body. Behind it all is a solid Scotch Ale flavour with depth and traditional characteristics. The 7.5% alcohol rating is not suprising given the body and flavour but is by no means apparent. The Salty Scott is smooth, flavourful and a delicious winter treat from the brewing team at Parallel 49 Brewing Company.
