From the clear 11.2 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on January 19, 2015.

It is highly attractive to look at with its yellow to light amber pour and big, cream colored head. The head fades with little lacing.

Alas, the clear bottle resulted in skunkiness or me. That overpowers the vague biscuit malt and mild hop characters. Not much in the way of wood or whiskey.

Medium body.

The taste seems to bring out a little more wooden musky cellar characters with those malts but nothing is really in my face. Mild finish. Maybe it is supposed to be mellow. If so, they succeeded. I think I wanted more punch.

Fills the glass with amber color (more orangey undertone) and a small white head with no retention to speak of.
The aroma is combination of malts, some woody and grassy aroma and just a pinch of that whisky aroma (could be just imagining it).
The taste starts nicely with a very moderate bitterness. The body is balanced and finishes with a minimal amount of sweetness (whisky-like).
Very nice, enjoyable and smooth. Could have a couple more.

nice amber color with a very good aroma, it's smooth with a subtle taste. A beer that you can drink a few of.

Beautiful copper color, very little light head with minimal lacing. The scotch barrel adds a different flavor than the more common bourbon barrel, much lighter and delicate. Reminds me of an oaky Newcastle brown.

It pours a nice amber orange/brown. Head and lacing are minimal. Smell consists of a faint hint of Scotch whiskey, malt, and grass. Taste is grassy, smokey, and oakey with a little tabacco. Definitely unique. It feels pretty light actually. Not very sweet. Not very bitter either. I let a few people who don't like craft beer sample it and they actually enjoyed it. I would definitely have this again but I don't think I'd buy it regularly. Solid and definitely worth a try to experience something a little different. Cheers!
