COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big and delicious for your íperty mouth. Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts. A bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark cherries. Itís a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

This marks the 100th beer I have rated. On tap at Capones. Pours a dark chocolate brown color. Has an aroma of grapefruit, caramel, vanilla, and toffee. Toffee leads the way on taste as well. The oak flavor is also powerful. Has a whiskey feel. Enjoyed it.

Bottle from a trade with phaleslu. Pours cloudy dark caramel color with light khaki head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla and oak. Flavor is lots of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts and oak. Lots of earth and wood notes. Medium to full body with soft carbonation and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Very nice. Thanks Peter.

Deep red amber color with thin,big bubbled beige head that disappeared by the end of the drink. The nose is all about the bourbon, with rich butterery wood notes. Whatever beer they started with is pretty much subsumed by the barrel. Bourbon, wood, fresh campfire smoke, and vanilla all float over whatever it was they but in this barrel. If you do not like bourbon, donít get this.

Pours a rich amber color with an off-white head. Nose full of trappist-style malts and woods, fruity vanilla, and some of those classic whiskey aromas. THICK creamy bourbon heavy palette. Smooth with real vanilla cream flavor on it. Surprising and delicious!

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brownish-red with a small white head. The aroma is awesome, lots of cherry, vanilla and bourbon. The flavor is just as great, with the same cherry, vanilla and bourbon notes, with the vanilla being the most dominant flavor. There is very little detectable alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium and the carbonation is low.

Excellent Scoth ale. The alcohol is remarkably well hidden. A great beer to have with a book by a fire. This beer warms the body and is quite enjoyable.

Draft at Caponeís; I hope you like bourbon (I do!); Aroma is of bourbon and vanilla; mouthfeel reminds you that this isnít for the weak of heart; chestnut-like color with no head; contrary to the commercial description, I didnít think it was a "sipper"; the faster I drank it, the smoother it got; I would definitely get it again under the right circumstances

On tap at Capones. Can you say whiskey? Aroma in the glass is of a nice sipping whiskey. Taste really shows it was stored in bourbon barrels. Interesting, but not what I wanted when I ordered a beer sampler.

Aroma is of bourbon and oak, with some alcohol and malt. Taste is a blend of bourbon and malted ale. Smooth on the palate. Initially sweet and finishes earthy and boozy. Overall this is a fantastic beer that expands the genre of scotch ales.
