12oz bottle in a thistle. Pours very dark brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate and toffee and caramel malts, a little oak and vanilla, and some light fruit notes. Flavor the same with a decent blend of the bourbon and the Scotch ale. Smooth texture. A pretty good beer, but I wish it had even more bourbon.

Extra in a trade. Light caramel color, creamy almost whip cream like head. Nose has a lot of depth, peat, oak, cedar, caramel and cotton candy. Lots of bourbon notes with vanilla and oak. the beer itself is really nice. great backbone of malt, sugars, minor tobacco taste. Pretty boozy as well.

Bottle, 01/01/2014. Pours deep reddish brown, medium light tan head, decent lacing built up around the glass. Aroma is sweet buttery raisin, red fruit, earthy toffee and hint of fudge, vanilla and bourbon finish. Taste is bourbon, toasted oak, brown sugar and cola, mild caramel sweetness, boozy bitter finish. Medium body, could use a bit more filling out. Pretty decent.

Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a deep umber color with a three finger thick khaki foam that laces nicely. The nose is maple, vanilla, smoke kissed malt, wet wood and caramel. The palate follows with a nice balance between sweet bourbon caramel and earthy leather, raisin, peat and a touch of dark fruit and nutty bitterness on the finish. Smooth silky mouthfeel.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark fruit, a little smoke, booze, malt. Pours a very dark red almost black with a quickly fading off white head. Very nice. Smooth. Lighter bodied than I would have expected but full flavored. Toffee sweet, maybe some vanilla. There’s a lot going on with the fruits and malts and layers. Very little bitterness but a slight earthiness right before the boozy warm finish. Very nice.
