3.51/5  rDev -5.6%
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.
