( 750ml 2009 bottle marked # 158/246 thanks to ericandersnavy - Rating #600!) Pours very murky brown with nice oily tan head. Nose of wood, caramel, biscuit. Taste of sweet malt, caramel, lightly toasted grains. A thick delicious body finishes this one. This is probably the best scotch ale I’ve had, and my favorite Cigar City beer so far.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2009
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 (6557) - 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.
