Draft. Specifically advertised as aged in Bourbon Barrels... just in case this ever gets moved. Pours amber with an off white head. Mild sweet and toasted malts, relatively mild barrel presence, faint bourbon, and mild bitterness. Really quite drinkable. GenDV138 (7828) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2015

On tap at the Brick Store Pub 17th Anniversary. Pours a clear brown, with a big, tan head. Grainy notes of rye, peat, some apple, toffee, and butterscotch. Sweet, with some light, earthy bitterness. Light body, grainy, and chalky, with just a little booze. Overall, this is a pretty light barrel aged beer, but it hits all the notes that I love in a good scotch ale. bhensonb (15963) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 19, 2013
