Tasting: February 18, 2015
Style: Scottish Ale (bourbon-barrel aged)
Beer #: 701

Earth & Flame

ABV: 11.7%

Of late, I’ve noted a number of beers in bomber-sized bottles that wore out their welcome the further into the bottle. Earth & Flame actually grew on me, at least a little bit as I worked my way through the bottle. At first, I thought watery and far too understated flavor. While I wasn’t overly impressed with this beer, the tail end of the bottle revealed some complex vanilla, caramel, peat and smoke. Surprisingly, not that boozy. All in all Earth & Flame is still understated and honestly it could have been better. I’ll put this at an okay 87 points.
