NeuroPliny (242) - Calgary, Alberta, - JUL 25, 2013
Pours dark brown from a 500 cc bottle. Tan head that is quickly fading. Aroma is sweet malt tinged with bourbon and oak with notes of dried fruit and spice. Flavour is wonderful dark sweet malts balanced with oak and bourbon. The bourbon barrel finish adds so much complexity to an already awesome Scotch Ale.

fluffy (2357) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2016
sampled at the 2016 brewers ball in tampa. not sure why more companies don’t put scotch ales in barrels-I think it works better than stouts and porters.

thepatrickman (835) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Bottle shared by tbub18 in Brooklyn (June 2015). I often find Scotch Ales to be too one-dimensionally malty for my tastes, but the barrel aging did wonders here. It’s sweet and malty, but it’s also got waves of bourbon and oak flavor that mingle in to every part of this beer. Delicious.

pushkinwow (2568) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle from Ian at the 2015 Ottawa end-of-year gathering. Very dark mahogany with a very feint beige film. Aroma was overwhelmingly sweet with lots of vanilla, scotch, bourbon, plum, caramel, toffee and raisins. Moderate+ body and mild carbonation, very sweet and almost cloying, very boozy, made me feel slightly diabetic.
