UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 Not sure if this is really a scotch ale but I like it. I don?t get a lot of bourbon from it but it?s really quite pleasant.

Some tannins, quite pleasant, reminding drinking whiskey. Flavor of wood, vanilla, nice slicky texture.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 bottle at home. Pours dark marroon brown with a tiny light beige head. Wow, this is one of the weirdest beers in terms of disbalance between the wealth of the nose and the lack of body and taste. The nose is quite rich in subtle vanilla and oak. Light body with a faint smokiness, but taste is like fizzy slightly bitter water.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at Den Gode Nabo. An unclear brown beer with a small, dense, light beige head. The aroma had some Bourbon initially, but it soon fades, being over powered by roasted malts, chocolate, some forest and a woody touch. It’s quite thin on the body, soft, and semi sweet. Roasted malts, chocolate and some wood and a faint boozy touch in the flavor. Mostly roasted finish, with a good dash of chocolate. Decent, that’s it. 140620
