Bottle: The aroma consists of bourbon, vanilla, light fruit, and wood. It pours a dark orangish-brown with a minimal beige film for a head. The flavor starts caramel, chocolate, and light fruit. The finish has bourbon, vanilla, wood, maple syrup, and light oxidation. Medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly slick mouthfeel.

( 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.
