On tap at FFF XV party. Served into a plastic cup.

A. Dark muddy brown with a ruby tint to it. One finger offwhite head. A small amount of lacing.

S. Smells of bourbon and raspberries,with an underlying caramel and earthyness.

T. Just fantastic! Bourbon and wood with caramel and toffee with a nice tart raspberrry finish.

M. Medium well carbonated feel kind of a tart dry finish.

Overall one of the highlights of the Party for me. I had 3 glasses of this! I wish I could get ahold of more of this as it was awesome!

Had this on tap at Olde Town Ale House in Fishers.

First experience with a Scottish Ale. When poured there was maybe a fingers worth of head, the body giving off a dark caramel color. Quite pretty to look at. The smell hinted at delicious malts, caramel, and a bit of alcohol. The taste is very mellow malt, with an ever so slight bitterness. Almost bourbon taste at the back of the tongue. Alcohol is hidden very well, I had no idea its ABV was so high until I jumped on here. Delicious all around. Due to high ABV, drinkability is reduced.

4.43/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Murky reddish brown ale with a small fizzy light red head.

Aroma: As the name would have you expect, I smell a lot of bourbon and raspberries. I really don't pick up on much else, but it smells great!

Taste: The brew starts with a tart raspberry front, a little sweet malt in the middle and finishes with a very smooth bourbon flavor. I scarcely detect any evidence of Robert the Bruce, which is fine as the Scottish Ale flavors compliment the raspberry and bourbon flavors.

Mouthfeel: It's a a little thicker than water with minimal carbonation.

Overall: I really enjoyed this ale. It was a fun and flavorful variation of a great beer.

Eis Igian,
Randall

Served on tap at the brewpub on 2/17/07. This beer was aged in a Woodford Reserve Bourbon Barrel for 1 year, and contained Raspberry Puree.

Smell - Strong bourbon scent with just a hint of raspberries.

Appearance - A hazy dark brown color with a red tinge. Very little head on the glass. No Belgian lace.

Taste - Light chocolate and faint caramel are there, but the strongest taste is the bourbon flavor. There is a wonderful late raspberry taste followed by a little lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Fairly full-bodied with a dry finish.

Drinkability - Excellent - not too sweet, too bitter, or too bourbony. The raspberry touch at the end makes you want to take another sip.

Served at FFF XV

The color of this reminds me of muddy water but the brown is just a little lighter. Where the appearance was lacking the smell was very good, bourbon with a hint of raspberry and some caramel malt. The bourbon is up front on the taste, a nice subtle oakiness and a pick up a little vanilla the raspberry goes very well with the oakiness from the barrel aging there is also a nice sweetness from the malt. The mouth feel is good but it could have used a little bit more carbonation but the malt really comes through to help the mouthfeel. Overall a really good beer, I am normally not a fan of beers with fruit in it because the fruit is the predominate flavor but with this beer the bourbon is up front and the raspberry come in very subtlety.
