Served in a snifter, the brew appears mahogany in color with an off-white cap that fades quick. The aroma smells of caramel, toffee and an overall sweet maltiness that almost hints towards the arena of being barrel aged. The taste is much of the same with a mild tartness to contrast the malty sweetness. Overall this is medium bodied and easy drinking.

A - Pours a mahogany brown color with a thin head and lacing of tan cream foam.

S - Aroma is thin and filled with bourbon and light oak. Not getting much malt from the nose, but a healthy dose of bourbon.

T - This is a very unique tasting scotch ale with a very tart character, not like any others I've had in this style category. Rather than malt forward and heavy stickiness, this one tastes like it has a little bit of Brett attitude. Tart and slightly sour cherries are mixed in with light bourbon, lightly toasted toffee malt, and oak goodness, interesting. The oak comes through a little stronger than the other flavors and the tartness gets almost puckering at times with a bone dry and wet finish.

M - Light medium to heavy light body and dries your mouth out, yet leaves the tongue watering. Tart green apples and slightly sour cherries sits on some oak which lingers on the tongue and leaves a slight alcohol effervescence that's dry yet still wet.

O - I applaud Bullfrog for brewing a unique Scotch Ale. I'm not a big fan of the style but this one is undoubtedly keeping my attention.
