On tap @ CCB for Hunahpu’s release. Pours jet black with little head. Sweet malty aroma with a bit of vanilla and oak. Very smooth drinking. Starts malty and caramel and turns to vanilla and smoothness of the Bourbon. This is very very good and dangerously drinkable.

Bottle 189 of 246. Poured as part of a CCB night at my house. We drank this side by side with the standard version. We did this same type of side by side recently with Alesmith Wee Heavy and BA Wee Heavy. Very similar to the Alesmith tasting, we universally found the original version to be better than the BA version. The aroma is heavy on the bourbon, some chocolate and vanilla. Taste is mostly bourbon...most of the original flavors of the base beer are absent. I really wanted to like this more than the standard, but it just fell a bit short.

Big bourbon nose, rich malts, caramel and toffee, I’m really impressed with how clean the bourbon comes through; no hot alcohol notes. Pours darker than the standard Big Sound, almost opaque, some haze, thin head dissipates quickly. Great mix of rich malts and bourbon flavors; caramel and dark sugars, mixed with a super smooth bourbon profile that goes down without any burn. Full body, low-medium carbonation, smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. Really liked this beer.

Pours like brown mud into the glass with a whisp of tan head. Aroma is boozy bourbon, figs, and brown sugar. Taste is brown sugar sweetness, spices, toffee, and barrel. Yum

Kindly shared by the GodOfThunder. Pours a nice thick brown with a creamy tan head. Nose is bourbon, caramel, lush touches of chocolate and vanilla, brown sugar as it warms. The unbarreled version didn’t strike me as particularly sweet, but this comes across as pleasantly sweet with caramel, oak, bourbon, vanilla, hints of cherries and dates, some chocolate, lots of malt. Drying sensation from barrel tannins and the alcohol, quite lush, lots of small bubbles, not syrupy. The barrel served this well!

Bottle. Pours a dark brown foamy head. Smells and tastes of bourbon vinillia spice booze sweet. Really nice. The flavors mix well bubbles a bit from the bottom. Still a bit hot bourbon taste. Really nice scotch ale.

Deep dark brown pour small head. Very woody pulp aroma with sweet dark malts. Boozey. Very sweet malt a bit syrupy. Light bitterness. Wood pulp tannins. This beer tastes really good in a tasting or sipping over a long time on a cold night.
