brainlair (236) - Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2010
Dark, opaque brown pour. Smells like sweet fruit, cherry peels, and a touch of alcohol. Taste starts off alright, with a standard scotch ale flavor, some wood, bourbon, and malt. But it all falls apart in the finish, an incredibly bitter an astringent flavor comes out of nowhere.

Pours out dark brown with some foam. Smells sweet and boozy. Taste is big malty with woody bourbon. Flavors of caramel, toffee, peat, vanilla and oak. Smooth sticky finish with nice alcohol warming. Another very good brew.

BigSound (196) - New York, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Pours dark brown with a thin short lived tan head. The nose has caramel and vanilla with some light notes of chocolate. Great flavors, very smooth feel. Caramel, sweet bourbon, nice dark malts, vanilla. Thick body, soft carbonation. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big thanks to Adam for this bottle. Shared with friends. The nose is bourbon heavy and malty. It smells really sweet and the bourbon adds a nice level. The taste blew me away. I am not a fan of scotch ales but the bourbon aging made this beer amazing. Sweet bourbon booze with a nice scotch ale base. Hope I can try this one again, outstanding!

NeuroPliny (142) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 25, 2013
Pours dark brown from a 500 cc bottle. Tan head that is quickly fading. Aroma is sweet malt tinged with bourbon and oak with notes of dried fruit and spice. Flavour is wonderful dark sweet malts balanced with oak and bourbon. The bourbon barrel finish adds so much complexity to an already awesome Scotch Ale.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 A: you can smell the booze from the beer, nice chocolate hint. A: pours dark red with a tan head. The cup lace is very strong. T: has some alcohol at the finish, hop, cocoa and malt. P: full mouthful, very drinkable and some thing I would share with friends.

Thanks to ericandersnavy. Poured a dark brown with a white top. Aroma was of coffee, logs, and pine. Flavor was of cherry, peat, and chocolate. Weird taste.

Last years release I believe, green wax. Murky brown pour, heavy barrel notes. Malty as hell, toffee, caramel notes on the nose. Medium texture. The taste follows suite, a little burn from the alcohol, I am sure this would mellow out over time. Pretty rich, probably not order everybody but I dig it
