7% ABV, Bottle

Appearance: Dark brown with a surprising amount of sediment. Low white head.
Aroma: Oaky and malty, a bit boozy.
Taste: Roasted malts and oak, and even a bit of a berry taste to it. A bit smoky as well, but not overpowering.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, pretty smooth.

Michigan Beer Cellar’s Headknocker Scotch Ale can easily be confused with an aged fruit beer. With a taste full of berries and a bit of an oak and malt tone, the flavor is surprising for a scotch ale. The smooth brew is pretty drinkable, with only a slight smokiness at the backend.
