Draft at source. Nose is lightly spicy with a rye like presence. Light woody tannins. Taste is very malty and a great Scottish ale. Light peat. Wonderful caramel and toffee not too sweet. Wonderful woodsy tannins help dry it out.

On tap at the Bistro Barrel Aged Fest in Hayward. Hazy medium amber color with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is floral with sweet malt and caramel, oak, fruity notes, and peas, oddly enough. Flavor really showcases the split peas, which I found really interesting and different. Also some slight vinous notes, oak, wheat, sweet caramel malt, and mild floral hops. Medium body with soft carbonation and high drinkability, especially for the high ABV, which is very well hidden.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Sampled at FoBAB 09. Awesome name. Also had no idea this had split peas in it. Hazy murky amber pour, some head. Aroma is caramelly and a bit wheaty. Kind of strange. Flavor is pretty strong and caramelly also. Really not sure what to make of this one, but it was aight.
