A-Darker brown, almost old barley wine appearance. No real head. No visible carb
S-Oak, vanilla, dark berries, whiskey
T- Vanilla, oak, and barrel up front. Berries come in on the back. Almost like a blackberry that has been sitting in whiskey for a while
F- Pretty standard feel
O- Complex and interesting blend. I would have love to have tried this fresh. Berries only come through in the nose and one the tail, but still a great brew.

This beer is Robert the Bruce aged in Templeton rye whiskey barrels with berries. Bottle into a taster glass.

Murky burgundy. Cloudy. Thin, fizzy tan head.

The nose: Raspberry, blueberry, blackberry. Cocoa, vanilla, caramel. A little dark chocolate, some oak. Very sweet and fruity.

The flavor: Less berry, more chocolate, softer barrel. Alcohol, black, raz, grape, a tiny hint of vanilla and oak. Not a lot of whiskey. Tangy.

Medium body, mild carbonation, holds together well.

More like juice than beer, overall. Good, not great.
