3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours murky red/brown with a very thin, offwhite head, specks of lace. Smells great. Sweet and vanilla with some booze and a hint of wood on the nose. Tastes ok. Wood and sweet oxidation with some spicy hops. Wood flavor is funky. Kind of a mess. Medium body, subdued carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at BD Aberdeen. It pours clear ruby with a small off-white head. The nose is soft, woody, sweet bourbon, toffee, dark fruits, oily and fruit cake. The taste is smooth, rich woody action, leather, varnish, resinous, alcohol boost, oily and earth with a warming finish. Medium-full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Very, very woody. Not bad, but I had hoped for more....

Taste of bourbon, oak, vanilla, toasty malt, some liquorice, alcohol, some toffee, subtle fruits like raisin and cherry plus slight spicy orange. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweet, malty finish with a warming, fruity aftertaste. This is delicious, little sweet but the warming bourbon and fruit flavours are great. Really enjoyed this.

Hazy deep amber beer, good cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, modest fine carbonation. Fluffy malts, light cream. Dark and slightly bitter toffee. Mild to medium Bourbon. Touches of bitter wookd and citric peel. Semi dry finish, strong bitter linger. A little on the bitter side but very drinkable.
