4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
the aroma is malty and oaky with shades of fruits and coconut... the taste is well-balanced, with notes of oak barrel, toffee, coconut, banana and melon... slight but noticeable hopping... spicy sweet and dry aftertaste...

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle received as a promo, Oct. 2013. Well, Iím interviewing the brewmaster tomorrow, so I had better taste one of these. Worried about the clear bottles, but Iím guessing these Scottish brews are not hop-dependent. While they claim no more than oak aging, I have a clear whiskey note when I open the bottle, no doubt a reflection of the malt. Light Crystal amber color in glass, pours a big puffy head that last for a minute or so. And so there is a bit of whiskey in the taste, but a lighter, sweeter taste, like a whiskey and water. That would be the "toffee and vanilla" the label speaks of. Result is actually light in taste for a barrel-aged beer, but the better result of oak aging is what I get.
