More Alabama beer. Ok. Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head. Nose is bourbon, maple, sweet malt, honey, booze, and hints of smoke. Flavor is similar with bourbon, maple, sweet malt, booze, and light smoke. Light to medium in body and interesting overall.

22 ounce bottle, finally my Alabama tick! Poured a hazy amber color woth aromas of caramel, light bourbon, some vanilla, light earth and smoke with a touch of nuts. Flavors are the same big on caramel and booze, light earth and vanilla in aftertase, decent beer overall.

Dark caramel color, and great texture. A big Scotch ale, and the Bourbon barrel aging gives it a vanilla aftertaste. Definitely an after dinner beer...

Bomber. Poured deep amber with a voluminous tan head. Once the head subsided, the aroma was sweet malt, some molasses, dark fruit. Flavor was rich malt, very sweet -- actually overly sweet -- some cherries and raisins, a touch of smoke. The bourbon is not overly strong but a little harsh. Mouthfeel is thick but not as thick as I’d expect from a wee heavy. Nice but I was a bit disappointed. Way too sweet.
