Scopey (6197) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours hazy deep mahogany brown with a small off-white head. The nose is sweet, vanilla, oak, fudge, coconut, dried fruits, toffee and some creaminess. The taste is wood, toasty, acidic, chewy malt, light tang, bourbon, warming alcohol, oxidised notes and damp wood. Fullish body, fine carbonation and chewy mouth-feel. Sweet, sticky and a bit hot. So-so.

Bottle split at Chriso, thanks to my man in PDX - ’Endo’, 10/07/14. Murky dark amber with a moderate beige head that dissipates to a swirl and edgeing. Nose is earthy wood, good bourbonic vibes, dates, fruit cake, candied fruit peel, light spice, boozey underpin, toffee. Taste comprises rich dark fruits, caramelised sugars, Xmas pudding, subtle bourbon effect. Medium + body, fine carbonation, sweet licks in the close. Solid American strong, lughtly warming boozed in the close and the bourbon is well pitched.

750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have bourbon and vanilla over top of doughy bread, caramel, some fruity character, wood with light spices. The bourbon was pretty much dominant the first time I tried this.
