On tap at Vickery Park in Plano. Deep amber with medium head served in a tulip. Tastes more like a barrel aged quad. Sweet but not cloying. Mild Tastes of figs and raisins. Very tasty. Strong alcohol on the nose but taste Hides the 10% ABV well. Would have again. (263 characters)

pretty one-dimensional - bourbon..but the barrel aging was done properly. (74 characters)

Dark muddy red caramel body. Finger of off-white head.

Vanilla, bourbon, coconut, caramel and dark fruits from the scotch ale. A little sugary sweet.

Fairly sweet with some heat. Cherry and plum fruitiness, vanilla, bourbon. Smooth and medium bodied. Super delicious.

After the tour time beers I was skeptical of Community busting out a contemporary beer nerd type of beer but this satisfied all my urges. (408 characters)

Need to chime in here and get Glenstemmons some props.
It's seasonal, so get it while it's hot.
It's stupid.
And it doesn't feel particularly Scotch Ale-y. Got some fruity, Belgian notes. (188 characters)

A: dark copper brown on the pour with little head
S: toast with a little bit of oak and a tad bit of coffee
T: some toffee and brown sugar at front but falls weak on BE like a normal amber ale
M: surprisingly medium light
O: unfortunately this beer had me excited and fell short. I wish they could've kept the flavor consistent through even at the cost of mouthfeel. Interesting creation that turned out good but expected more after their last few releases that I love (469 characters)
