I really liked this one! I’ve had quite a few barrel aged brews now and this one was very drinkable!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, shared by brew3crew. Oh man, awesome bourbon barrel aroma in the nose. Some chocolate, butterscotch. Light roast malt, little dark fruit. Hazy dark brown / red color, lots of particles in the body. Minimal off-white head, just a couple dots of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Nice coconut flavors, especially through the finish, light caramel, vanilla bourbon. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Lightly spicy. Just a hint of a bite. A delicious way to do a scottish, definitely a treat. Thanks for sharing this, Jason!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle through trade, cola brown pour with minimal white head. Aroma of some boozy toffee and very feint vanilla. Taste is similar, quite a bit of heat and bubble finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by jesterdeal at tasting at my place. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of heavy bourbon, oak, baked bread, cocoa and molasses. Medium body. A bit too "hot" for my liking.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of espresso, sardparilla, vanilla and slight soy. Pours brown and hazy with minimal film. Taste is nice with watered down coffee, vanilla bean, and molasses. A let down for sure.
