Cigar City Big Sound Scotch Ale

A bottle of Big Sound Scotch Ale from Cigar City Brewing in Tampa, Florida.

As the name indicates, Big Sound is an 8,5% abv Scotch Ale. It poured a dirty brown color, with a beige head. The aroma was dominated by a nice, burnt caramel sweet character. The mouthfeel was medium heavy with a soft, creamy texture. The flavor started out with caramel, toffee, cocoa and hints of fresh coffee, very harmonic despite the sweetness. A great Scotch Ale.

Back in 2009, Big Sound was the first Cigar City beer I tasted, the brewery has since become one of the most successful US craft breweries with a number of highly acclaimed beers.
