Grand Teton Brewing Sheep Eater Scotch Ale

There are a couple of things in this world that go hand in hand.  Like football and fall, Chicago dogs and Nuclear Green Relish, and the expectation of great beers from every Grand Teton Brewing’s Cellar Reserve Series release…and GTB’s latest offering “Sheep Eater Scotch Ale” is no exception. 

Inspired by traditional scotch ales, the Sheep Eater offers up a fusion of Scottish identity combined with an Idaho backbone.  Like so many of the Cellar Reserve beers, it’s rich and malty boasting a flavor profile that could inflate any bag pipe while providing enough sophistication to entice the biggest kilt wearing curmudgeon.  The Sheep Eater is just another example of perfection in a bottle and one of the more unique offerings from GTB’s library.

Here’s my complete review:

Grand Teton Brewing Sheep Eater Scotch Ale
Dark copper brown in color the beer pours with a healthy head.  The nose expresses malt, roasted coffee, acidity, and the flavors of brown sugar oatmeal.  Round, soft, and welcoming the palate is a balanced expression of Tetons pure water along with caramel, brown sugar, and malts upfront followed by touch of aromatic hops and mild carbonation.  Finishes clean with dark roasted coffee and sweet raisins. 

Recommended for: Scotch Ale, lager, or beer enthusiasts.
