750ml bottle shared by Andrew (bottle 18/246)... Pours a dark reddish caramel brown with a thin off-white head... Caramel apple and bourbon sweetness with assertive vanilla tones as well... Flavors are very similar to the aroma but doesn’t followthrough as well. Somewhat abrupt finish, boozy and a little thin from the barrel. I prefer the normal version to this actually.

BBB63 (6510) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Bottle shared with Shawn, thanks: Deep brown hue with crimson highlights topped by a fading head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of smoke, tobacco, bourbon, walnuts, vanilla and chocolate with a hint of oxidization. The taste has a big shocking mocha and vanilla overtone with light dark fruity and earthy tones. Boozy and medicinal notes on the finish. The scotch ale seems to be in submission from the barrel aging. The mouth feel is lively and crisp with a warming character, chalky and band-aid finish. While still a nice brew overall, it seems a tad brash and loses some base beer character.

750 ml bottle thanks to my hook up- Dave! Shared with a few guys at the massive tasting. Pours a pure black color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet fruit, nutty notes, light wood. The flavor is similar; sweet toasted malts, nutty flavors, light dark fruit, a noticeable barrel but not overly so. Quite drinkable and tasty.

Pours a cloudy brown mud, full sheet. Big bourbon, vanilla. And notes of choc. In the nose. Big bourbon notes valong with a thick chocolatey malt character and background booziness. Very nice and warming with sophisticated bourbon and malt and pretty agressive hopping.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2009
25.4 oz bottle. Deep purple brown with a thin tan coating. Massive spicy nose of prune, peat, vanilla, scotch and bourbon. Zesty carb cuts through a rather full body. Taste is woody molasses and currants, scotch then huge bourbon lingering through the finish. Over the top but it works for me.

JohnC (3004) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Thanks to beerlando for this brew It pours dark, opaque brown with a touch of red highlights and has a thin yellow/brown head. Creamy on the tongue, it has a bit of a sticky taste with some nice maltiness. The barrel aging plays well in the background.
