4.16/5 rDev -3.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
On tap here at Stubbys in MKE. Got the very last one - keg blew right as this finished pouring onto a globe.
Appearance: Pours a caramelish color with a nice head that retains for a couple minutes.
Smell: chocolate. Little bit of booze. Luxurious. Yeah, that's a good word for this.
Taste: slightly boozy, definitely not obnoxiously so. Chocolatey, caramel, melts in your mouth taste.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth. Oh, so smooth. Right up there with the Skull Splitter in this department.
Overall: very nice. Wish they didn't run out here, but happy I got to review it!!
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pours a muddy brown color with just a hint of red to it. Thin sandy colored head simmers down quickly, leaving just a thin layer above the beer.
S: The bourbon definitely jumps out at you right away. Toasted coconut, vanilla, burnt caramel, brown sugar, spicy oak and just a bit of marshmallow. Smells pretty great.
T: Tons of rich maltiness right off the bat with a lot of caramel, oak, molasses, vanilla and bourbon. The finish brings some heavy oak and some light cinnamon and charred wood. Mouthfeel is slick and gives the sweeter caramel flavors a bit of a buttery feel. This is pretty good stuff. Way up there on my list of scotch ales.
