This recipe using Scotch de Silly was created by Nicole Darchambeau.
This dish is an ideal food to pair with this dark beer, with its aromas of spices and caramel and hints of fruit. The beer has amazingly delicate hazelnut aromas, which sets it apart from the traditional British scotch ales. It also has a more rounded taste and a hint of bitterness. Serve Scotch de Silly chilled to between 6 and 9°C.
