4.58/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Brown with a reddish tint. Surprisingly thin.

Smell: Bourbon oak with some soaked apples and plums. Very sneaky smell...alcohol is definitely evident in the finish.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Bourbon and oak/cedar traits. I love the molasses and raspberry flavors...they are extremely faint and subtle but definitely there. Feels like a good session ale, but finishes like bourbon...kind of like a good college party. There is definitely a burn in this. Perfect.

Overall: An incredible scotch ale.

Serving type: on-tap
