Aroma is scotch/slight peat and vinous/dark fruit. The flavor is dark fruit/vinous, scotch/slight peat, fruit/berries, medium sweetness, very slightly spicy and a warming/alcoholic finish.

mrjaxson (448) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2015
A sweet, booze-heavy ale (identified as 9% ABV on the taproom blackboard) that came out of the tap with no head and jet black color. Hints of bourbon, caramel and vanilla in the aroma. Again, like so many Central Waters bourbon-barrel offerings, there isn’t a hint of hoppiness to be found. Have a good base in your stomach because this is heavy and creamy but, if you’ve got a bit of pasta in your tummy, very palatable.

Dark brown with a slight red hue. Strong pete malt flavor. Very oaky. Slight booze. Kinda flat.

Sampled at tasting...so many times scotch ales are overpowered by the scotch flavors...this one was perfect...really mellow scotch notes...very smooth brew almost crushable..

Bottle. Pours black with a tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is malty and bourbon. Medium bodied. The alcohol hits you hard up front and lingers through the finish. The bourbon over powers all the other flavors. Which makes this scotch ale disappointing.

jredmond (7180) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Draft at One Mile House with Linh. Pours a deep brown body with thin tan carbonated lacing. Aroma is melted caramel, butterscotch and fudge. Light brandy in the back. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with notes of sweet syrup, melted buttery chocolate, brandy barrel and brownie. Super woody in the finish. Good stuff but a touch sweet.

Bottle thanks to Mike. Darkest red with off white head. Aroma if sherry, dried fruits, vanilla. Taste of dried fruits, dates, raisins, sherry, vanilla, oak. Quite sweet. Delish
