2009 vintage. A hazed brown scotch ale with a thin brown head. In aroma, loads of dark fruits, molasses, light soy sauce, alcohol warmth, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with dark fruits, plums, molasses, licorice, floral hops and alcohol warmth, 4 years old and still going strong. OttBottShare Dec 15 2013.

mcberko (10568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
750mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours a dark mahogany with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, wood, oak, light whiskey and flower notes. Flavour of caramel, whiskey, wood and low sweetness for a scotch ale. Very highly carbonated , much more so than the non-oak-aged version. The booze is not hidden at all - feels more like 14-15%. Quite decent but lots of flaws.

BMan1113VR (7911) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle marked that it was aged in casks for for months. Long ago trade. Pours with a medium clarity, mahogany hued brown body with a lasting, firm off-white head. Great lace and retention. Aromas are of mejool dates, caramel, armagnac, brown sugar and toffee. Medium esters of stewed pears, some oak, vanillin, candied walnuts, cola. soot, and port. Well refined, but with a slightly disappointingly low barrel character (I want a bit more barrel in the aroma). Flavors are of cotton candy, low but definitely noticeable diacetyl, toasted coconut and raw coconut, barrel, brown sugar, alcohol, suntan lotion, raisins and figs. Alcohol is quite mild, warming, fuller body, light oxidation, medium-low carbonation. I find myself looking for more barrel character (both flavor and tannin).
