Radical Road Brewing Canny Man Scotch Barrel Aged Wee Heavy (after 87 weeks ageing in my cellar)

Pours a slightly cloudy dark amber brown. Still plenty of smoke on the nose but there a burnt caramel sweetness reminiscent of sponge toffee. On the palate the smoke doesn’t seems as strong as I remembered. I would no longer call this the Lagavulin of craftbeer but still a well peated scotch. The finish is smooth, starting off smokey ending with a lingering sweetness balanced with some faint bitter notes. Definitely still enjoyable but probably best that I cracked this open now rather leaving it for another few months. Highly recommended.

My Original Review:
Tons of smoke on nose & palate (think Lagavulin as craftbeer) balanced by sweet molasses malt.
