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.

A big, smooth beer that holds up to the bourbon. Malty, vanilla, and well-balanced.

Pours amber with a light khaki head. Aroma is huge with bourbon. Also has hints of vanilla, oak, cherries and caramel. Flavor is bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, toast, oak and toffee. Bourbon does not come through as much as I thought it would after smelling this beer. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

BA Hunahpu release day!!! Just a great beer, Big Sound is one of my favorites from CCB and adding bourbon just makes it better. The nose is full of bourbon. The taste of caramel sweetness mixed with bourbon flows so beautifully in my mouth. This beer and a redheaded girl would be a great time!!!

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.
