on the cask at the eastside.
dark amber in the pint glass, a pretty cream of large bubbled mess atop.
very little aroma, some subtle vanilla and smoke.
the flavor however, bursts into my mouth like so many movies. giant vanilla oak note with terrific malt backbone to substantiate it. the peat offers support, giving it even more of a woodsy flavor. camping in the woods, really. surrounded by the flavors of the earth. a beer for Pan and his lute. There is a touch of earth and spicy hop, rounding out this perfectly flavored scotch ale.
Love the oaking..

This cask version was aged on oak, which gave some extra character to the beer. The beer was fairly average looking for its style, a pleasant reddish brown color, with just a thin cap of off-white head. The smell was nice malty with a touch of peatiness. The flavors were also outstanding, with the added oak increasing the enjoyment.

The body was typical for the style, full, but not heavy or sticky. Drinkability was very good, having a couple of these on a rainy spring evening was a joy. Overall, a very tasty brew, a must try if you see it in it's limited release.
