3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crowler from the pub. Pours a murky brown with an off-white, quickly dissipating head. Smells delicious. Big aromas of bourbon and caramel, sugary malts, barrel. Similar taste. Lots of sugar. A medium+ to heavy sweetness with a moderate bitterness that comes in mid-palate and lasts. Full bodied; finishes lightly bitter and dry.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 24, 2014 Tap: Deep, murky brown color with some mahogany towards the center, offset by a beige & gray tinted, soapy head that lasts only a few seconds. Aroma is full of dark fruit, bourbon, oak, & some sweet Candi sugar. The bourbon opens up in moments, & gains speed pretty quickly. Taste is also very bourbon forward; lots of booze with each sip, borderline hot, plenty of oak, Candi sugar, dark plums, mild chalk, & a hefty toasted bread finish. Decent, but I’m not a huge Scottish Ale fan to begin with, & a heavy bourbon presence doesn’t necessarily help the style out.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Lots of bourbon booziness in the aroma and taste. Caramel and nut malts with a smooth finish. Nice sipper.
