Edwin’s Winter Scotch Ale aged with bourbon-soaked oak to give this Scotch a nice warm round body.

popery (1993) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 3, 2011
On tap at Toronado. I sat down next to one of the brewers, who encouraged me to try it and explained that this beer had soured unintentionally. They ended up liking the mildly sour version enough that they sent a keg to Toronado. It was actually pretty nice for a big barrel-aged scotch beer with a tart twang. Lots of caramel, some good whiskey and a fruity sourness. A bit sticky on the palate. Nice looking beer. I wrote this one in my notes as "barrel-aged Edwin’s", so I’m not positive that this is the right entry.

Draft. Rich amber beer with an off-white head. Chocolate and bourbon aroma. Bourbon and chocolate flavor. Medium-plus bodied. Chocolate and rich malt lingers with bourbon and light spice.

marcus (9133) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 7, 2010
On tap at Triple Rock. Pours reddish amber with a thin beige head and a toffee aroma. The flavor is smoked malt and caramel corn.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Tasted at Triple Rock. Garnet reddish brown with a thin head. Aromas of caramel, grain, and bourbon. Grain, caramel, a mild spiciness, and bourbon tastes. Decent.
