Poured from a bomber at 60 degrees. Pours dark red, light head. Smells of raisins, and booze. The raisins continue on the flavor profile with caramel. Very smooth. Sits nicely on the palate. Pretty good beer.

From a flight, easily the best beer of the night. Lots of scotch and oak in the nose and taste. Good color. Smooth drinking. Really liked this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber orange. Aroma is sticky sweet. Big aroma. Alcohol is on the nose. Almost like a barley wine. Flavor is sticky sweet, malty, dry harsh wood, alcohol. Light light touch of peat but not much. Mossy finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at a homebrew club meeting. Dark golden brown color with a thin tan head. Definitely smell the oak aged scotch. Great drinker, not hot for being over 8%.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet fruit, with hints of wood and smoke meet the nose. A cloudy copper pour with a mostly dissipating white head and no lacing. The palate is malt forward - velvety sweet, toasted malts, nutty, toffee, candy sugar, with hints of peat. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Creamy rich mouthfeel. Overall impression is that this is a winner. Rich, malty, smooth, and very satisfying. Would drink again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mildly entertaining brew. Thin, dark color. Hopscotch ring to it. Light head. Smooth to bitter wash down. A rather dry flavor. Pretty simple. Basic. Drinkable but not mindblowing. It has a warm body but lacks some bottom. Definitely not in the same league as an Old Chubb...
