4.25/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Very dark reddish brown, like a chestnut finish color. Pours with a minimal taupe head that lingers on the edges.
S: Getting tons of sweetness, dark brown sugars, caramel. I also get the bourbon characteristics and a lot of woodiness
T: Very, very sweet. Has more dark sugar and even chocolate characteristics. Really tasted a lot of roastiness to it also. Definitely getting the bourbon flavors again too
M: Nice and think, medium carbonation with a very smooth finish. Alcohol is fairly minimal on the tongue
Overall, I really enjoyed this. One of the better scotch ales I've had, definitely the sweetest. While not a great textbook example of a scotch ale per se, it's still a very good beer
Serving type: bottle
