COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seven Devils- Our newest experiment with barrel aging. This time we brewed a delicious Scottish Ale (anyone remember our Nessie’s?) and aged it in bourbon barrels.Our brew master says "It’s like drinking a candy bar." Notes of chocolate, caramel, and coconut blend with the caramal and roasty maltiness typical of Scotch Ales. Available on tap and in 22oz bottles. 8% abv

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 19, 2013
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.

Medium brown colored pour, light tannish head. Flavors of sweet bourbon, but not overly barreled here. Vanilla, toffee, sweet oaky flavors, malty grains, honey cheerios. Nice brew.

Drake (8536) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bomber from Appalachian Vintner, Asheville. Pours a dark hazy bronze color with a thin tan head. Decent head retention. Big whisky aroma, booze, spicy wood, raisin and toffee. The taste is wood, raisin, whisky, toffee, booze, green apple, burnt sugar, toffee. Thin-medium bodied. Decent, but could use a lighter touch on the wood aging.

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.

For some reason im not a resounding fan of all of this brewery’s ba beers. It is a good beer but a tad sweet and unrefined to my palate.

22 oz. bottle via STLHops trade. Thanks again, Jeremy! Best by February 2013. Oh well. I just got it this week. Pours a deep, hazy, almost muddy mahogany chestnut brown color with a small beige head that settles into a ring and a few spots. Aroma is barrel-forward; vanilla, oak, coconut, caramel, toasted chocolate, brown sugar, and smooth bourbon. Not much Scotch ale character in comparison to the barrel notes but it smells great. The flavor drops off a bit; quick bourbon barrel notes initially, with bourbon, oak, caramel, vanilla, and coconut, giving way to earth, leaves, and chocolate. The body has thinned; smooth and almost watery, with minimal carbonation. Some lingering booze but not much. Had the body held up better and flavor popped more, this would be awesome. As it stands, it’s still pretty damn good, mostly held up by the nose.

DrSilverworm (6367) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2013
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!

During RBWG 2013. Deep amber brown pour with a small tan head. Rich BA aroma with fudge, coconut, oak, etc. on top of a rich, somewhat sweet base - caramel, a wisp of char/smoke, and some dark fruits. Sweet BA flavor with wood, whiskey, fudge, on top of a somewhat sweet base already - caramel, etc. Not bad.
