Rahr Iron Thistle ....

Another local: my beer for today is an Iron Thistle from Rahr & Sons Brewing Company.  This is one of their seasonals (January-February), a Scottish-style ale.  It comes in a twelve ounce bottle, and the web site shows 8% ABV and 25 IBUs.

This Rahr poured with a small to medium head, which was a lighter brown.  Definite chocolate in the aroma.  The color is a darker brown, which lets through very little light when held up to the light.  There is some nice malt and a heavier mouth feel.  The higher alcohol is there in the taste and warms you up a bit.  Slightly sweet.  Some nice hops on the tail end that fade into a slight bitter aftertaste.  Medium to full bodied.  This is definitely one of my favorites that I have tried from Rahr.
