Hoppin’ Frog Barrel Aged Outta Kilter
Hoppin’ Frog Barrel Aged Outta Kilter is a Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy. I’m a fan of the Barrel Aged Scotch Ale so I was a little excited to see this in Florida. I grabbed a 22oz bottle in spite of the hefty $16 price tag. Carbonation seems a bit low, and with no bottle date I have no idea if this is an older bottle or not. This smells pretty nice with aromas of vanilla, toffee, butterscotch, and the mildest smell of whisky. The taste is what you should expect: Sweet toffee/caramel, some dark fruitiness, hints of vanilla and cherries, and some mild whiskey. This a tasty beer that’s worth a try (I think I paid too much though, $10 – $12 seems more reasonable), but nothing that would dethrone the likes of a Founders Backwoods Bastard.
