On tap @ Bear Republic Brewery. Aroma is red wine, plums, barrel wood and toffee. Appears a crimson/amber with a thin foam head. Taste is port wine, grapes, sugared caramel, barrel wood, plums and biscuit. Overall, this was pretty well done.

On draft at Tap Room 307. Not much aroma. Lots of whiskey in the flavor, and a bit astringent. A little lighter than expected. Pretty good.

A: The beer pours a dark amber color with a finger or so of off-white head. S: Rather sweet with a nice maltiness to it. Good toast, toffee, and caramel with a mild oakiness and bourbon aroma. Some dark fruit notes and brown sugar. A touch of dark malt in there, too. T: A mild roasted malt flavor up front. Toast, bread, toffee, and caramel provide a nice sweetness. The oak flavor is a bit more pronounced than anticipated, and there is some sweet bourbon and vanilla in the background. M: Medium to full in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: Not a ton of barrel influence, but a nice bit of oak and whiskey to it.

JohnnyJ (4362) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 8, 2010
Draft at SD Strong Ale Fest 10. Dark amber pour, small off-white head. Caramel, fruit, vanilla, bready malt, and oak. A good scotch ale that works well with the barrel, much better than the regular version.

bhensonb (11095) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 14, 2010
On tap at the Bistro BA festival. Pours really dark amber with a beige head. A sort of warm honey aroma. Flavor is slightly malty with light oak/vanilla. It drinks really well. Just excellent.

nickd717 (3497) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 13, 2010
On tap at the Bistro Barrel Aged Fest. Mostly clear reddish-amber in color with a small off-white/light khaki head. Sweet malty aroma with a slight peatiness to it and nice barrel notes. The flavor has caramel and biscuit malts with only a restrained sweetness that may have been muted by the -bal aging. Peaty smoke is present but slight, and there’s an earthy note to it along with some vanilla and oak. Medium-bodied with softer carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. A really solid -bal aged scotch ale, if not one of the standouts I had today.

Draft. Mahogony beer with a cream colored head. Malt aroma. Malt and plum flavors with toffee and light barrel (bourbon) notes. Medium bodied. Plum and toffee lingers with light bourbon and very light banana.
