Highway 78 Scotch Ale
Stone Brewing Company (Collaboration with Green Flash Brewing Co. and Pizza Port Brewing Company)
The Highway 78 Scotch Ale is a collaboration beer between Stone, Green Flash and Pizza Port breweries. These three breweries decided to combine their brewing skills to create this heavy rich, malty ale made with all English ingredients. The initial pour shows a very dark reddish brownish color with little to no head. For my first taste I immediately thought coffee and hints of carmel. It is a thick body but is not as filling as I assumed. I feel like this beer would be a delicious dessert beer. This beer also has a slighter bitter taste which I’m assuming is due to the higher alcohol content of 8.8%. I would definitely recommend this beer to the dark beer drinkers and think that the collaboration was a success.
