3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle BBE: 14-02-16. Lightly-chilled. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a small, loose, off-white head. Good lacing. Very sweet, vanilla fudge nose, with pickled gherkin (really) in the background. Pleasant. To taste, a medium-high sweetness, moderate tartness and light bitterness. Light-medium bodied with a chalky texture, low-medium carbonation and a reasonable, woody finish. Overall a very raw-tasting ale with strong vanilla and woody dryness from the virgin oak. A more robust ale may have stood up better to the aging, but it’s interesting nonetheless.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Crafty Pint.
Appearance - deep amber no head.
Nose - sweet malt and toffee. Whisky of course.

Palate - medium bodied sweet and unbalanced.
Overall - not sure what they’re trying to achieve here.

Lightlt hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy with a modest minerally crispness. Smooth malts. Nice light vanilla precedes mild tangy fruits and mellow whiskey. Finishes light and crisp, with a bare whisper of smoke. Tasty and easy drinking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in October 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale copper in colour with a thin white head. Sweet malty aroma with hints of warm honey. Thin mouthfeel and poor lacing overall. Pale malt gives a rich malt loaf base with sweet notes of heather honey and vanilla essence. There is a spicy, resiny note to the short hop prickle in the aftertaste. Finish is smooth and malty with warming mead notes combined with vanilla oak cask in the mouth. This is a cracking Strong Ale and in the same stable as Broughton’s Old Jock. Decent stuff.
