another gravity head find 10 oz draft pour
Beer arrived with almost no head at all, just a few bubbles clinging to the glass. No lacing left to mark the passage this most unusual beer.
Color was a deep dark copper brown, without a hint of cloudiness.
Aroma was quite mild, mostly sweet maltiness, without a hint of the suprises to come.
OK, maybe it was a surprise only to me. The chalkboard indicated it was a scotch ale, not a whiskey barrel aged scotch ale.
Normall I don't care for whiskey/bourbon barrel aged ales, but I did like this one. The whiskey flavor was not quite overpowering and the smokiness of the scotch ale shone through nicely.
Serving type: on-tap
