Smell: Really Smokey,umami, light coconut , milk chocolate, brown sugar. A hint of maple syrup. This is really Scotch Barrel forward on the nose.

Taste: Right Upfront you get those fimilar no rules tasting notes. Milk chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla a hint of maple syrup. Then it the mid palate is where the Scotch barrel really shines you get a beautiful smokiness, umami quality. That umami flavor carries into the finish where you get a little bit of booziness along with toasted coconut more brown sugar and cinnamon.

Feel: Medium body, a nice amount of carbonation that helps the beer. A fair amount of creaminess. This has a mouthfeel like a barrel aged central Waters beer.

Overall: They did a great job with this beer and how they used the Scotch barrels. You get that familiar no rules profile upfront, but in the mid palate is where the Scotch Barrel takes over. I prefer the regular, but this is World class and a great variant. Unique and different. Well still having the familiar no rules notes. This is less sweet and balanced. So if you think the regular version is to sweet try this. 99/100
