4.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Serving: four ounce sampler from tap at Beer Junction. (The version I sampled was Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged Scotch Ale.)
Aroma: cask wood.
Appearance: no head (perhaps because it was a sampler). Hazy, dark-amber body.
Taste: sweet, whiskey-like, initial flavor and lightly bitter, woody finish with long duration.
Palate: medium body, watery texture and flat carbonation.
Overall: unique. I would like to try this again.

Very tasty scotch ale. Big malt forward flavors with a light hops balance. This was a great new beer by this brewer.
