Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.

We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

Beer Review - Great Scot

Peticolas Brewing Company Great Scot Scottish Ale - 6.8% ABV

This American genre bender beer is the second release by Peticolas and another big face full of flavor.  I have minor issues with American brewers labeling their beers a style which they really aren't.  Great Scot is labeled a Scotch Ale .... meh.  However, this beer is so delicious that they could have called it Liza Minelli and I wouldn't give a crap.

The beer has a really mild nose and is a dark mahogany brown in color.  The texture is smooooth too.  You will taste dark chocolate, molasses, a bit of smoke and light hops.  Darned smooth.  Really, really smooth.  Maybe the best way to discover the flavor is mix Young's Double Chocolate Stout with Belhaven Scottish Ale.  But you don't need to go that do you?  You just need to go try this delight from Peticolas.
