Notes/Commercial Description:
Born as a rich, creamy strong ale, this full-bodied scotch ale is allowed to rest in selected oak whiskey barrels to mature and develop flavors slowly and naturally. The nose combines bourbon, American oak, and cotton candy aromas. Complex malt flavors framed in oak, with hints of vanilla, tobacco, and toffee. This is definitely a sipping beer, best served in a brandy snifter. This ale pairs well with dark chocolate and sturdy cheeses.

Bottle from strang. From notes.

A - Poured a hazy copper colour and bright. Good carbonation with a two finger soapy light brown head. Good lace rings and a finger of retention.

S - Dark fruit buttery caramel, toffee, vanilla. Great sweet and complex aroma. Candy-like.

T - Lot's of toffee and caramel, vanilla too. Dark fruit.

M - Good carbonation that was mild and pleasant. Medium body and a sweet then very dry finish.

O/D - Nice scotch ale. Very tasty, sweet, and full of complexity. The barrel is subtle, but there in a complimentary manner. Well done.
