Scotch Style Ale Aged In Oak Bourbon Barrels

Thanks go out to fellow BA nlmartin for this beer as part of Secret Santa 2007. 1L, swing-top, impressive bottle. Shared on Christmas Day with the family.
I am generally not a huge fan Bourbon based beers simply because I often find that the Bourbon taste has the tendency to overwhelm the brew. Because of that fear I was delighted at the general smoothness of this. Yes it certainly had the Bourbon traits in the nose and in the taste, but it was a taste that melded all the malts and alcohol perfectly together.
Warmth and softness in the mouth. Delighted that the brew was not too edgy.
Very silky and smooth, and very well balanced. One of the few Bourbon based beers that I have really enjoyed to the full.
