22oz bobmer via trade drank during my birthday night. Poured a super dark brown, almost black, with a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma of peat, earth, bourbon, chocolate, syrup, vanilla extract and dark burnt toast. Flavor is boozy, earth, chocolate, alcohol, dark fruit and sweet dark syrup. Full bodied that is syrupy with average to even light carbonation and a lingering flavor with some nice ABV heat.

Sample at faux-bab. Dark brown pour, darker than most scotch ales. Taste and aroma are chocolate and scotch. I get a lot of burnt smokey peat malts. Comes off more of a scotch whiskey than bourbon.

NeuroPliny (166) - 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.
