look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours honey colored with tan head. Average head retention, good lacing

S: Malty, peaty, some smoke

T: Follows the nose, some cakey notes & booze, some dark fruit as well. Oaky dryness, honey & boozey notes as this warms. Finishes fruitty, slightly boozey, peaty & somewhat dry

MF: Fairly chewy, low carbonation, a bit hot

A sipper, has the chops for the style, but needs some more time. This will be better by far in 6-12 months. Was expecting more now to be honest

3.51/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.25

750 ml bottle poured into snifter.

Pours hazy apricot with a thin white half finger head. The aroma takes me back several years, when I was a big scotch drinker, needless to say the scotch profile is very big. Sweet smoky peat is very prevalent, small hints of toffee and butterscotch, and some lemon squeaks its way in there. The booze in the nose is quite powerful.

The taste is surprisingly watery at first, then peat comes out and attacks your palate. The smokiness aside there are some oak notes, along with some citrus fruits, and a bit of toffee candy sweetness it the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel leaves a lot to be desired. Way to thin for the amount of smokiness on display. ABV is noticeable yet not crazy.

I don't think scotch whisky barrels are the best for aging beers, but this was a decent attempt at it. I think with a better base beer it could work really well.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-Cloudy deep orange, that clears up after a while, not much carbonation and a one finger head.

S-Scotch, lots of it. Very fruity and grassy, speyside lie. But too much alcohol in the nose.

T-Very scotchy here as well. Not much malt like other scotch ales, fruity, apples, some earthy tones. A lot of barrel flavor. But the alcohol flavor does not mix well.

M-Lighter, tad watery, not much carbonation, alcohol heat.

O-I wanted to like this beer so much, but the alcohol presence was too much.

750 ml bottle, 2012 vintage. Served in a thistle glass, the beer pours a cloudy golden/orange color with about a half inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like whiskey, peat, caramel, oak, bready/grainy malt and some pears. The flavor starts off very peaty. There's also some bready malt/grain, oak, pears, candied fruit, iodine, honey and toffee noticeable too. I think the peaty and sweet flavors mesh well together in this brew, it tastes better and better the longer I drink it. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's chewy and coating with moderate carbonation. I like this beer a lot, I'll have to see if I can find another bottle. Definitely worth trying! $10.99 a bottle.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Minimal head on a cloudy burnt orange with a golden hue when held up to the light. Aroma is as advertised with excellent scotch malt presence which warms the nostrils with additional notes of candied fruits, oak and excellent caramel note. Flavors are actually much more subdued than the aroma would foreshadow. Although the somewhat sharp, scotch notes are evident, there is a balance if sweetness with mostly yellow apple, caramel, oak, resins and bready malts. A bit watery with a semi dry finish and light carbonation. The alcohol is strong here but you actually get used to it quickly and it's not overbearing. This is definitely worth trying for its uniqueness but I would split the bottle with someone.
