3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle shared by Cuso at RB Tasting Vienna March Edition. Thanks!
Brown, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of dried fruits, spices, smoke, sweet malts, some bourbon.
Taste quite follows this, with more alcohol presence and more caramel like sweet malts.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes alcoholic, a bit dry, with sour dried fruits, some smoke.
Scotch Ale isn’t my style and this one is no exception. But still a good beer and a nice opportunity, as this seems to be quite limited. Lots of sweet, heavy malts, with boozy, barrel aging notes.
