This was interesting because every other dip it changed. One sip was all whiskey but when it was balanced it was nice. Julie gives it a 2.5 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly better than the normal version of their Scottish ale, but still pretty shallow and mild. The whiskey makes a slight difference, but it doesn’t do enough to redeem the lacking beer underneath.

Tap at GC in Eagan, MN. Clear reddish amber pour with a smaller head. Thin palate. Caramel malt and maybe a hint of whiskey, but overall this is quite muted.

Roseville location. Tap. Brewed with Maker’s Mark. Pour is a clear copper/amber with a thin head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of malt, caramel, light roast and vanilla. Bourbon comes through slightly on the taste. Medium body. Decent and easy to drink.

JK (4614) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Not much going on here. I could just barely pick up the whiskey, and probably because I was looking for it. A thin Scottish ale with not a lot of flavor or aroma.

steeleliver (120) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 19, 2012
The whiskey added nothing extra to the standard Scottish ale. The taste was indistinguishable when compared head to head. Still a shallow ale, with carbonation that was very soda like.

badlizard (5537) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Tap. Dark copper brown with a fizzy tan head. Molasses oak and very subtle whiskey aroma and taste with a thin watery palate. I want something more robust overall.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Draft at the Kansas City location. Aroma is mild with cardboard and bourbon. Very thin on the mouth. Flavor lacks any real backbone and tastes like an eye dropper full of bourbon put into a glass of water. They really need to beef up the Scottish Ale a bit. Nothing to it and adding the whiskey just messes things up even more.
