Well, this one is interesting.
Appearance is slightly cloudly, with a lighter than amber hue. Vigourous pour brings a solid inch head that trails off to a moderate froth shy of a 1/2 inch.
The nose comes pff with a smokey dominance, followed by a hint of peat.
Flavor is more peat than smoke, slightly breadt sweet. A bit like a single malt scotch, but usually I like a peat in my scottish ales. Somehow this one comes in and out of the "I think I like it" zone. It's a bit perplexing. It has the flavor of scotch, yey it's very lite on the heat.
Mouthfeel is lite & thin.
Finish has me a bit confused. Not bad, but, well...I'm still thinking.

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.

A big beer, the whiskey from the barrels dominates the malt. Definitely worth a taste, although it would be markedly better using older, aged Scotch barrels to produce a more mellowed taste profile. The nose is probably the best aspect of this beer.
