4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Notes from 4/26/2014. Typical bourbon barrel (brown sugar, vanilla, oak) with some smoked malts, caramel, and toast. I also got some leather (? Can’t read my writing). Anyway, I ticked it 4 stars on the day, my notes add up to 4.1. So not too far off.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: murky brown, lively, nitro looking espresso creamy head.
S: big tar, chewy baked brownie, bourbon mixed with root beer.
TM: creamy cola feel, rich bourbon is mild. A light booze/burn/warmth on lingers. A bit of sherry sweetness on the back. Sharp tannin like a black pepper burn.
O: Clean, pronounced flavors, would not expect much more from a BBA Scotch Ale.
