4.45/5  rDev +2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured mostly black with some hints of brown around the edges. A finger of mocha head. Really impressive looking cask pour. Good lacing as well.

S: The sweetness and wood are fighting for control. I don't think either really dominates. There is some vanilla in there as well. The roast is subtle but enhanced by the oak aging. Really impressive.

T: I usually find Scottish ales to sweet but I think the oak aging solved that problem. The sweetness is there but not as much as the regular version. The roast is there as well. Just a well crafted and complex beer.

M: Nice creamy mouthfeel. The carbonation is spot on and really helps the drinkability.

D: Again I will say how lucky I am to be able to get these oak aged cask beers from Middle Ages. Really nice beer that does not have the massive ABV hammer associated with it. Still holding out for Oak Aged Druid Fluid!

On cask at the Blue Tusk. Pulled into an imperial pint glass with a nice, ample, bubbly tan head. Ruby to black in color, and a smell of fresh oak and roasty malt. Oak flavor came out right up front and was quickly followed by that great roasty/smokey flavor of this scottish ale. Some vanilla tones in the background and balanced out by some earthy hops. A perfectly pulled cask ale - slightly warmer than cellar temperature, low carbonation, and delicious. Could have easily drank another if a private party wasn't coming in shortly after we arrived.

On cask at the Pizza Plant on Main,poured a deep garnett with that cask creamy one finger head.The oak comes thru right away in the nose with a punch of vanilla along with some dark fruit and brown sugar,the oak doesnt overpower on the palate but props up the already nicely roasted and sark fruit flavors by adding some vanilla and a touch of woodiness in the finish.Ahh yes a nice cold weather warmer that went well tonight oh very smooth and damn quaffable.
