Dubbed as a Bomber McMoody Ale The Tam O’Shanter is a Scottish punn-tastic collaboration between Vancouver’s Bomber Brewing and Port Moody’s Moody Ales. Released just in time for Robbie Burns Day This Scottish Ale is appropriately labeled and pours from the bomber bottle as a clear but dark, chestnut brown colour. With two fingers of dense and lacing head the Tam O’Shanter smells rich and creamy with notes of toasted malt, caramel, toffee and a vanilla like smoothness. Tasting the beer it is smooth like butter with a creamy texture along side a rather bubbly character. The flavour is rich and toasty with a caramel sweetness and a slighty burnt toffee bitterness. The Tam O’Shanter is quite smooth overall but the burnt tones add a contrasting sharpness to the flavour. This beer is a classically styled Scotch ale but turns things up with the kettle caramelization that adds mroe to the already flavourful brew. This is a delicious beer through and through. Pick a bottle or two up today, Robbie would have wanted you to!
