2009 bottle at the brewpub. dark brown with a tan head, this barrel aged version is quite different than its standard counterpart. the wood really comes out, as does the maple. the alcohol leaves a nice burn, this beer is so amazing.

Wow. Thanks alehunter aka Dominic! Pours a beautiful murky chestnut brown with very little head. Aromas of strong vanilla and caramel. A touch of funk and bourbon too. This is not too sweet at all. Just a beautifully balanced beer. Sweet vanilla and caramel with enough boozy warmth to keep it balanced. One of the great beers I’ve had the pleasure of trying.

Bottle. I’m really not a huge fan of scotch ales, and not much of the regular version of this beer but the barrel aging has a tremendous effect on that beer. Obvious notes of maple taffee in the taste but the bourbon notes are much prevalent over anything else. Notes of dried fruits and vanilla, with a quite intense leafy hoppiness also present. A lot of alchool. Long aftertaste with the bourbon notes persisting. Pretty orgasmic to my tastebuds...

Rich brown pour, tan head. Flavors are really wonderful. Rich bourbon notes, toffee, maple, vanilla, golden raisins. So smooth and so tasty.

Bottle 2009 at the brewpub. Murky brown with some yellowish head. The barrel aging really brought out the maple aroma of this beer, mixed with lots of spicy, vanilla oak notes. Taste is sweet maple flavor, lots of wood and a strong alcohol finish. Palate was hot and velvety like a good spirit, a very nice beer.

huge bourbon nose with lots of chocolate and cherries. Very rich cherry cola. Massively bourbony but so well integrated. Boozy. Lingering cherry chocolatey finish.

Bière brune trouble avec des reflets... euh... bruns troubles. Nez d’alcool, de vin rouge, de crème brûlée et de pain doré. En bouche, les saveurs que laissaient anticiper les arômes explosent avec une touche d’érable en trame de fond. Le boisé nous suit aussi, en finesse, du début à la fin. La rencontre d’une grande bière et d’un baril de chêne qui se sentait un peu seul; du grand art!

Bottle 341ml. Pours dark brown with low beige head. Aroma is of bourbon, malt, alcohol, fruits, maple syrup. Taste is of bourbon, malt, alcohol, caramel, sweetness, fruits, maple syrup. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Very good. Easy to drink, not cloying. Bourbon (and alcohol) is bold, but it does the trick. Solid.

Bottle [341ml] c/o Glouglouburp. Pours a very murky , dark amber-brown with cool sediment formations and an average size diminishing fizzy tan head. Lovely aroma of bourbon, wood, caramel malt, some maple, vanilla, dark fruit and more. Flavour: Wow that’s good! (8+) Sweet and malty with a perfect amount of bourbon barrel-ageing, not overdone, along with some maple syrup and dark fruit. Alcohol is very well hidden considering the abv. Medium to full bodied, sticky mouthfeel. Awesome stuff, I knew this would be good but not this good.
