Aberdeen, Scotland, UK
I’ve waxed lyrical about BrewDog on this blog many times before for coming up with innovative beers and their fresh attitude to brewing and beer. Beer aside, BrewDog also has a great sense of humour and regularly come up with humours beers that also taste good. When I spotted Santa Paws, a Christmas Scotch ale I knew I had to try it.
I rarely go for ales like this but always trying to change my taste buds and try new brews. This Christmas Scotch ale has a strong coffee aroma and is very dark. When I poured it out, it didn’t have any froth or head and had no carbonation. It is a silky Christmas ale that is perfect with your roast dinner.
It is a malty coffee infused Scottish ale. I really love everything that BrewDog do and even this Santa Paws Scottish ale, it is a bit of fun but honestly, it doesn’t really do anything for me. It tastes pretty bland compared to other dark beers that I’ve tried. This is a decent beer but nothing amazing.
