The maker, TSA (Traditional Scottish Ales) Brewing, specialises in Scottish beer recipes and names them after famous landmarks and Scots. The Glencoe is a lightly-hopped “toasted oatmeal” flavoured stout, which pronounces the roast malt taste and aroma.
It’s a wonderful deep black colour with a little light lacing on the head. There’s a wonderful rich, roast malt, slightly coffee taste that lingers longer than any beer I can remember! It’s very smooth indeed and every bit as “silky” as TSA Brewing promises.
As close as a filling stout could be to a sessionable beer. Really easy to drink.
