3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes. Enjoyed this baby at a line share at Witchís Hat on St. Pattyís Day. 750 mL bottle poured by origins unknown, once again. People just kept showing up at our table. Didnít hate it, but couldnít keep track of them. The pour is interesting, to say the least. Itís a solid brown, with hints of lighter red shining through. There is a big frothy light khaki head that foams down, leaving some good lace. This thing is exceptionally clear as well, Iím not sure what to make of that. The aroma is a god-damned scotch bomb. There is some wet barrel staves in there, and itís got a heavy sweetness. There is a little tartness to it, but itís just not very good. The flavors are a little better. There is a souring to it, which honestly seems like itís from the barrel, rather than intended. There is again a lot of scotch, but itís a touch more balanced than the nose. Itís not bad, but itís far from good. The mouth feel is light, thin, and slick, with a pretty bubbly sharp carbonation and a lingering sourness on the back end. I would never drink this one again, but hey, itís a retired Bruery beer.
