3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler filled at The Beer Growler in Brookhaven, ATL. Pours a rich creamy-topped reddish copper, soft and full on the palate. Great malt profile and nice bitterness. Almost like an imperial bitter, if that makes any sense at all. A tad sweeter, though, and a subtle hint of peat smoke.

12oz bottle from GT Package in Grovetown. Almost full black pour with a beige head. Tasty thick, sweet plums, light smoke, caramel and cocoa. Interesting blend that was not perfectly put together, but solid. Interesting, for style. 13.5

On tap on nitro at The Brick Store Pub in Decatur, GA. Opaque dark brown pour with a silky one-finger nitro head. Light peat smoke and caramel on the nose. Taste is caramel, light smoke, dark fruits. Hint of sweetness but no hops. Medium mouthfeel, no more. Nicely delicious and very easy to drink.

Very light smell but sick so might be that....taste is not as expected... Lighter and crisper than I’d expect from a scotch ale...more mild and mellow too...could also be cause I’m sick though... Dry and hoppier than a reg scotch ale. .need to have again when not sick

Bottle. The wood really stands out in the bourbon barrel version, while the standard edition relies on its sweet malty caramel - wet and smoky.

Draft in Augusta. Good stuff. Dark brown pour. Mild aroma. Tastes more like dark amber but no complaints. Nor heavy or hoppy.

Deep, clear ruby black-brown. Clingy almond head. Hoppy, sweet and tannic malty aroma. Very tasty, dark syrup, assertive hops, medium sweetness for style, some roast. Chewy. Stiff bitterness in the finish, along with a light astringency. Overall very good. Taco Mac, John’s Creek.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at a restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. The pour is dark, opaque brown with a modest tan head that fades down and leaves lacing. Enticing sweet malt, peat moss, and light smoky aroma. Little in the way of hops. The body is medium but soft and delicate. Sweet malt taste with no booze and a light dry finish. I would like to get this one in my area.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Toasty aroma with some hop pungency. Taste is good with some nice chewy malt that has some good caramel qualities. Spicy hop backbone. Finishes with some nice biscuit. Very drinkable.
