3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
It’s a little light in body, but makes up for it completely in flavor and aroma. Pours fairly dark with no head. Nose is booze and more booze. Flavor is raisins and figs steeped in barrels of bourbon. But in a good way. Seriously, it’s a little light in body and that’s my only note.

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured a hazy dark reddish brown color with a moderate frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy toasted malt, bourbon wood and earthy scotch aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy bourbon sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. A smooth complex drinkable brew.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
brown with caramely glow, no head. Coconut caramel and burnt sugar aroma. Flavor is a bit disappointing compared to the nose. Tastes like a brown ale with some barrel character.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour with no head. Aroma is bourbon with vanilla and oak and underlying malt sweetness. Taste is bourbon and vanilla, light roast, some sweeter malt, and alcohol bitterness on the finish. Coating mouthfeel. Cannot tease out much of the base beer but the bourbon treatment is smooth and delicious. Nice beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From 22oz bottle.
Poured with little head, with a so-so brownish color. Sweetish aroma with strong hints of caramel. Taste is consistent for better or worse. I say that as I am not a great fan of beers that have a sweetness for the sake of simply being sweet, such as milk stouts an, well, Scottish ales...
I believe fans of Scottish ales will really appreciate this beer.
