markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Sampled at 2011 Cajun Cafe Fall Beer Fest (decided batch # based on the bottle pic). Pours a red-brown with an off-white head. Nose is sweet malts, candy sugar, light wood, and some fruit- plums maybe? Flavor is similar with the oak seemingly stomping on some of the quad notes. The sugar and fruit is a bit subdued in favor of the woody flavors. Light to medium in body with well-hidden alcohol.

Bottle, bought @ Beer Planet, Brussels.
Pours muddy dark orange with a small, creamy, beige head. Aroma has caramel, smoke, oranges, pear winegums. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy palate. Flavour has caramel, dried fruits, peity smoke, vinious. Notes of Scottish whiskey (even if those barrels weren’t used). A bit sharper than the others, sadly. Still great, though.
