Bottle shared by Hopscotch. I’m not that into scotch ales but this was a pretty damn good beer. Dark reddish pour with a good oily lacing. Aroma was definitely scotchy and bourbony. A lot of the aromas came through in the flavor as well. Not overy boozy and it was surprisingly easy to drink.

A beer that I most remember for the fact that I said "hm, you couldn’t tell this is aged in any kind of whiskey barrel, let alone a JD barrel." Other than that, I dunno. It was pretty sweet and caramel and scotch ale like, which isn’t particularly interesting to me but also isn’t bad. Remarkably low on the alcohol taste, which is good, I suppose.

Bottle at the Saturday night hotel tasting after EBF. Pours a clear orange and ruby color with a thin beige head. Toast and malt, candy notes. Lots of malt, sweet and toasty. A bit of alcohol coming through, lingering on the finish with warm caramel notes.

[3603-20110219] Bottle. Fragrant spicy malt aroma. Hazy, dark amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Caramelized peat spices and roasted fig malts in the flavour. Medium-full body. Tasty, an interesting balance of flavours. (7/3/9/4/16) 3.9

2011-02-19. Hazy brown body with a foamy tan head that fades. 3+ Aroma is dominated by wood, gives the impression of freshly cut oak. 7+ Flavour is less intensely woody, but still has a prominent oak character. Sweet sugary malt core is secondary to the wood and balances itself out fairly well at first. The wood character is less harsh/rough than in many barrel aged products but for my own tastes I still found that the pervasive wood character continued to grow in prominence as the glass went on, eventually overshadowing the base beer more than I’d like, and lingering long into the finish. Smooth average plus bodied palate. A nice beer but I’d personally rather have the pleasant malt base brought to the forefront more. Bottle at Volo, Toronto

13-02-11 Bouteille: Belle couleur brune-rougeatre, trouble, avec une légère effervescence. Puissant arômes de vanille et de boisé, mélangé a des notes de miel et d’alcool. Très sucrée, un peu trop. Petite amertume. Comme les arômes, nous retrouvons de puissantes saveurs de vanille et de boisé, enrobé dans de l’alcool très présent. Complexe, mais le sucrée prend ici un peu trop de place. Corps puissant, avec une texture épaisse et ronde en bouche. Longue finale sucré, alcoolisé et réchauffante. Très bonne bière, mais qui manque légèrement de balancement et qui pourrait devenir encore plus spectaculaire.

Belle petite bouteille de 500ml. Bière brune avec une mousse une teinte plus pâle. La mousse est pas mal épaisse. Nez agréable de caramel, de whiskey, de bois, le tout sans agressivité. En bouche l’alcool est quelque peu présent, elle mousse en bouche, elle a un bon goût de caramel et de whiskey, mais pas trop. Agréable comme tout.

Hazy dark Amber with a large beige head that stays for a long time. Aroma is Bourbon, Wood, caramel and some dark fruits. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Taste is Caramel, almost like butterscotch, the wood is there but it’s very subtle. You can taste a bit of the Jack Daniel in the finish, but caramel is overwhelming it... a little bit too much for me. I still enjoy it though.
