Bridgeport Highland Ambush Scotch Ale

Bridgeport Highland Ambush Scotch Ale, a Big Brew Series offering from Bridgeport Brewing, poured a cola hue into the glass, topped with a long-lasting, buff head.  Vanilla and some fruity esters here present in the nose.  

Bridgeport Highland Ambush Scotch Ale opened surprisingly non-aggressive for a Scotch-style ale.  I'm guessing the barrels they are using are either unused, neutral oak or way past their prime.  That's not to say it's bad... it certainly isn't, but none of the Makers Mark (where the barrels are supposedly from) made it through and even the wood added, at most, maybe just a bit of vanilla and creaminess.

Bridgeport Highland Ambush Scotch Ale... fun beer, but don't walk in with style or process expectations.
