2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber colour with low head. Higher alcohols dominate the aroma, followed by heather and grass. Not so sweet mouthfeel given the high ABV. Big on higher alcohols with whiskey notes and peat. Fruity and grassy with notes of heather. Peppery finish. Each to his own I guess.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2014-08-08. Crisp golden body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma of peat smoke and moderate woody barrel notes. 3+ Flavour is moderately smokey throughout but it ends up being the dominant character for me. Sweetish pale malt core. Moderate alcohol is largely masked by the smoke for me but is relatively restrained on its own merits. Very smooth medium bodied palate, soft carbonation. Well crafted beer but not to my own taste. Bottle shared by HogTownHarry

Purchased at LCBO for around $12. I have Never had a beer with such obvious barrel smell to it, smelled great. Taste was great as well, strong tho, I was hurting with a bad hangover the next day. I think this was a top notch beer tho!

Pours a clear rich amber with a white head, and great lacing. Aroma includes notes of scotch, apple, sherry, plum, liquorice, and mash. Tasting notes include a huge scotch kick with lots of apple, caramel, plum, sherry, and liquorice. The palate is smooth, and slick with a boozy and spicy finish. Excellent!!

Deep amber pour with a slight white head. Really nice nose to this. Sweet, wheat and whisky. Taste is nice and interesting. Odd finish, like having dryer lint and week old cut grass in my mouth. Other than that, really cool.
