Tasted Tuesday 29 June 2010. 500ml bottle, 6.5% Alc/Vol.
This has been infused with authentic Kentucky Bourbon. Which brand or how, I’m not sure. Maybe the brewer in the middle of a bender accidentally tipped a bottle in the mix trying to brew under the influence. The result? Quite nice actually. Perhaps not as strong or complex as some Scotch Ales but this will suffice on a cold winters evening, and at 6.5% alcohol a couple more can happily be consumed. It is big rich and malty. Sweetness up front with liqueur-like spirit undertones plus burnt toffee, banana, clove and a hint of smokiness. It is very well balanced with medium carbonation, a smooth dryish finish and low to mild hop content. Very yum indeed.
