4.05/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Not sure of the date, but I bought this a while ago. Deep mahogany colored body with a little creaminess on the surface that all but disappears. Smooth bourbon aromas, woody spice, molasses, toffee, berries, and coconut. Not particularly hot smelling, which is nice. Flavor is smooth and rich...wow. The bourbon blends nicely with the base beer, which results in something sweet like pure honey and toffee ice cream, vanilla, chocolate, and brown sugar, but absolutely no harsh barrel notes. Warm cinnamon way in the back along with some coconut. Super smooth, creamy body has some thickness and leaves a bit of heat in the throat. Sweet-as-fuck, which is my only gripe, but this is a dessert beer, right?

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - copper mahogany color with a thin film of tan head

Smell - bourbon, caramel, toffee, maple, booze

Taste - caramel, toffee, maple, bourbon, booze

Mouthfeel - medium plus bodied, low carbonation, slight sweetness upfront, barrel and booze on the back end

Overall - decent beer, but the booze from the barrel overwhelmed the characteristics of the scotch ale. Worth a try

Price point - $6.99/12 oz bottle
