Got this one from Kevin67, cheers Kevin!

Pours an effervescent mahogany/chestnut with 2+ fingers of mocha colored head. Average head retention & lacing

S: Bourbon all over the nose, a little bit of fig & raisin as well

T: Figs, plums, a little booze, some leafy hops up front. Dryness, figs, leafy hops as this warms, plus raisins, slight oakyness & vanilla as well, faint brown sugar notes as well. Finishes oaky, dry with raisins & figs, slight burning booze

MF: Kind of light in body, firm carbonation, slightly warming

The Scotch part of this is fairly muddled & the barrel side is kind of rough. Still thrilled to try this though

Nice Scotch notes in the smell, little bit of wood, vanilla bourbon. Extremely carbonated , malty, light scotch ale taste. This is pretty refreshing for a scotch.

A recent foray into the Green Mountain State provided the opportunity to stop by this unassuming brewer (See Reveiw). This 9% wee lass opens with a massive froth that filled a third of my tulip glass; a timely subsiding left a flimsy head atop a tar black body that resembled a glass of oil. Inside, along the glass wall, there is a mighty torrent of white pinpoint bubbles rushing towards the top.

The nose is a subtle waft of bourbon mash and molasses; upon the initial sip, there are hints of sherry, vanilla and malt that cede territory to a smoked charcoal finish.

Minimal mouthfeel borders on silk and booze. A potent quaff from one of New England's hidden gems. During the aforementioned trip, I bought a case of this elixir. G'night wid ya laddie!
