Big and delicious for your ’perty 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. It’s a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

Incredibly smooth, strong is an understatment. taste the bourbon barrel, carmel and the malt. This beer is 1 of three I got for myself in Charlotte back in Nov 10. Black in color with a little carmel brown near the bottom, nice head and lacing.

Poured a cloudy brown color with a medium sized head. Aroma of bourbon, wood, and malts. Lite sweetness hits the tongue first followed by a dry bitter bourbon taste. Palate is med to full bodied. Sort of creamy and oily texture. Ave carbonation. Wow, the beer really soaked up the oak bourbon wood. It really takes over this beer. When you get past the oak, it is a well rounded scotch ale nice balance of malt and hops. I would get it again.

From a growler. The aroma is scotch, sweet caramel, oak. The appearance is a deep opaque dark red/brown, small head. The flavor is scotch, caramel, peat, earth, oak. The body is medium/thick. The finish is alcohol warming, sweeetness, pine needles. Nice, even if the scotch is a little overpowering.

pours a dark ruby brown with almost no head. lots of wood and liquor in the nose. taste is a smoothed out scotch ale flavor with the bourbon and oak notes. kind of sweet and syrupy. i also taste a slight nutty flavor in there. well balanced for a 10% abv beer. very good and alot better than i originally thought. great beer from an amazing brewery.

bottle - meh, not what I expected - strong bourbon flavor - very smokey with strong alcohol notes. Not really what I look for in a beer

Thanks to NBondi for the bottle. Deep murky brown pour with a thin tan head. Maple syrup, oak, bourbon in the aroma. Taste is thick and chewy malt, spicy hop bitterness, toffee, maple syrup and hints of bourbon all popping out. Extremely complex and tasty.

Initial aroma of faint spices and scotch. Medium-thick body with a sweet, almost honey-like flavor, subsiding to the warm hint of scotch.

Very dark brown with flecks of red. Head is essentially non-existent despite an aggressive pour. Slightly leggy appearance. Moderate bourbon nose with some cinnamon and baking spices underneath, dried cherries, dates, and mild alcohol akin to cough syrup. Flavor starts out sweet with some slightly sprucy hops, watermelon fruitiness and caramels, but the alcohol quickly overshadows everything, turning very dry with a tremendous alcoholic send-off. Mildly carbonated with a dry finish. Like the name implies, seems as though it is made with abrasive moonshine.
