Turn-of-the-century Scottish brewers relied on caramelized brewing sugars to lend flavor to their strong ales; we brewed our Scotch ale with dark candi syrup from Belgium, where similarly flavorful brewing sugars can still be found to this day. Shapeshifter pours a deep mahogany color with ruby highlights and a luscious cream-colored head. Aromas of caramel and hazelnuts waft from the glass, to be followed by decadent flavors of dried figs and berries, pipe tobacco, and marzipan. This velvety, rich sipper is perfect for a chilly Autumn day. 8.3% ABV.
