Davey Murray's Best Scotch Ale

I recently checked out Lagunitas' Davey Murray's Best Scotch Ale. This beer is a member of their 2017 One-Hitter Series. 9.5% alcohol. 52 IBU. The story on the rim goes something like this...
O gude ale comes and gude ale goes; Gude ale gars me sell my hose, Sell my hose, and pawn my shoon- Gude ale keeps my heart aboon!" Cheers to the great Bard of Ayrshire for this ale’s epitaph: There is a beer, whose clarity’s clear, can teach the mash paddle to steer, and fuels the brewer's mad career. This ale within is fine to brew and quick to know, and keenly felt by the friendly glow, and softer flame, of the heartful jolly soul that wears this name. Beer-lover, attend! Whether thy soul soars in fancy’s flight, or on this earthly whole in low pursuit, know water, barley, hops, and yeast are Davey Murray’s root. What’s it all got to do with beer? Give us a call! 707.769.4495
Lots of floaties. Caramel and sweet toffee aroma. Similar flavors including caramel, toffee and rum. Sweet. The alcohol does show and tames some sweetness. Herbal, a little medicinal. Was OK but not my gig!
