4.76/5 rDev +8.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from the bottle into a snifter.
A: A dark auburn brew with a thin off-white head that recedes into a lace on the rim of the glass. Could remind you of cola.
S: Sweet and hot from the bourbon. Wet, dark fruits come through.
T: Bourbon, yet so smooth compared to others of the style. Vanilla and oak are obvious.
M: Smooth all the way across the palate. It's like this brew just spreads across your entire mouth leaving an aftertaste of sweet vanilla. Not too heavy for a wee heavy.
O: Overall, the best wee heavy I've had. Makes me want to stand in the cold rain wearing a kilt while bagpipes play in the distance. 10/10 will drink again.

4.29/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
12oz brown bottle with foil wrapped neck poured chilled in a stout glass.
The color is dark cocoa brown with thick rapidly falling head with fine bead with spots of lace that sticks and clarity is translucent. The smell has intense bourbon in the nose with some vanilla elements and light custard-like sweet caramel creamy scent with light toasted grain and yeast with bready quality and mild alcohol and sweet woody accent. The feel has a thick body up front with moderate carbonation and light wooody texture with gentle sweet feel in the middle and gentle alcohol w/ slightly thick body and spice element as it finishes.
The flavor brings a lot of malt with moderately woody flavor and light caramel with buttery toffee-like taste with slight toasted character and mild warming flavor from bourbon in the background. The taste has a good cohesive sweetness with barrel blended well into the base and nicely balanced malt with scotch ale flavor smooth yet still strong as it finishes more on the sweet side. Overall this is a great mix of scotch ale with bourbon in an almost seamless combo -this is like a match made in heaven with malt complexity enhanced nicely by the woody barrel aging.
