Luscious and almost naughty, Scottie MacRocketts is local homebrewer Nathan Compton's contest-winning strong Scotch ale! Malty and delicious, this beer is very well balanced for such a huge brew. Munich and Simpson's Medium Crystal malts contribute extra maltiness and residual sweetness respectively. For the little bit of color and roastiness that are characteristic of strong Scotch ales, a little bit of both chocolate malt and roasted barley are used. The malt character is balanced by two additions of Fuggle hops and give it just enough hop bitterness to cut the malty goodness.
Nathan's beer wowed the Great Fermentations staff, and a decision was made: this recipe must be brought to the masses! Thanks to Nathan's blessing (which he probably gave a little more freely after having a few pints of this beer), you can make it at home yourself!
