Dark brown, with a head that is almost yellow while it lasts, which isn’t long. Nice and thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. The barrels have added a very pronounced whisky nose, and it’s a good one, with wood, vanilla and a bit of smokiness. Dried fruit too, which carries into the taste, alongside lots of deep malt, syrup and some smoky spice. Finish is great - lingering pepper and tar. Best scotch ale I’ve had.
