3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Brick Store Pub 17th Anniversary. Pours a clear brown, with a big, tan head. Grainy notes of rye, peat, some apple, toffee, and butterscotch. Sweet, with some light, earthy bitterness. Light body, grainy, and chalky, with just a little booze. Overall, this is a pretty light barrel aged beer, but it hits all the notes that I love in a good scotch ale.
