3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours a light amber brown color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is caramel and oak with hints of vanilla. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with vanilla and a light grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Not as bold as many scotch ales that I have tried, more refreshing and easy to drink. Definitely, something that you could drink all night long.

Dark, almost looks like a stout, but with very little foam. Large bubbles... Fizzed like a soft drink. Strong oak flavor. Nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Visual: Pours deep dark brown without much head, a very thin half-layer of micro retention, some fast streams near the perimeter.
Nose: sweet caramel malts. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp-slick, incoming sweetness, whisky maltiness
Mid-palate: fizzy, (lvl-7)-sweetness, (MAIN) caramel malts, white oak, alcohol detection, peaty backdrop
Finish: vanilla, cola, sweet finish.
Summary: Just an okay barrel-aged beer. Flavours seem muddled and there’s a lack of elegance in transitions and body.

Translucent copper brown, head dissipates, but not too quickly. Mild scotch, malt, caramel, and spice aroma. Smooth and mid bodied. Immensely smooth combination of caramel, malt, spice, and prominent scotch. Finish is sweet scotch and mild hop. Quite liked this one.

Large head when poured in a tulip glass. Flavours of vanilla, cream & tobacco & oak barrels. Very smooth & silky. Great beer for conversation.

Thanks to Reimer for this. pours clear reddish caramel with a small white wisp. Aroma is sweet whiskey with caramel backing. Taste is a slightly sharp whiskey notes with caramel malt. Seems like the base beer isn’t big enough to handle the barrel treatment.

Bottle 650 ml. Pours clear caramel with copper glints. Thick soapy white head. Aroma: interesting mix of vanilla, bourbon, toffee, oak and malt. Taste is very similar. Very tasty at first but taste quickly disappear and leaves a dry mouthfeel. Some carbonation. Heavy beer.
