3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky brown with fading brown head. Aroma is sweet with caramel, but frowsy like toe funk (brevibacterium linens?). Sour soy saucy tastes with some cherry notes. Bourbon character is there, but perhaps overtaken by some lactic edge. Kinda reminds me of SA Triplebock lite. $12/1L

Dark hazy reddish brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of toffee, sweet malt and bourbon. Taste of sweet malt, toffee, bourbon and mild alcohol. Usually I hate these bourbon things, but this one was passable as the bourbon wasn’t overpowering.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big 1L bottle. Poured a dark reddish/brown. Virtually no head. Big malty woody aroma, almost like a barleywine. Sour tasting, hope this isn’t how it’s supposed to taste, hoping for a bad bottle. Not crazy about this one.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours brown. Looks like a watered down cola. Nose is unique, but not pleasant. Has a sweet malty smell(too sweet). Scotch is barely evident in it’s flavor. Overall it’s flavor is not something I enjoyed and have poured it down the drain 3X now. While I enjoy Ale and multiple versions of scotch(Islay is the favorite), this isn’t palatable to me. Definitely an acquired taste. After three tries, I can honestly say this one is not for me.

1 liter bottle. Pours a dark semi clear coppery amber with a medium sized light beige head. Aroma of candied sugar, malt and bourbon. Taste of candied sugar, malt and watery bourbon.

Cask at chelsea brewery cask fest.- Nose is spicy, pours cloudy brown ints of red, little head with small beige bubbles, some wine in the nose. bourbon, vanilla oak. tastes like watered down single malt scotch. a little bit watery very good overall.
tastes a little like a thanksgiving dinner. very full bodied. loads of whiskey. the last drop was like a watered down speyside.
