COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

bottle(s) from Illini08. a somewhat murky brown with a fast fading head, little lace. aroma is all about the barrel with oak, vanilla, a hint of smoke and of course the bourbon. flavor is more of the same with some peat making an appearance. I’ve always liked a good scotch ale and this one fits the bill!

Probably shouldn’t have cracked this 10.2 ABV monster so late in the night, but it’s been taunting me from the fridge for a while now. Sweet cherry malt and a light mintiness on the nose. Lots of wood and alcohol grows as it breathes. WOW what a great burst of unexpected fantastic flavors. The nose gives no hint of how much is going on in the glass. Big smooth nuttiness and alcohol. Malty creamy chocolate and deep cherry. Alcohol and vanilla and all around loveliness. Damn this is good. And BTW, I rated this before I read the bottle or description above.

26-09-10 bouteille provenant du kentucky (thanks to my boys): Couleur brun-rouge, limpide, tout en étant légèrement trouble avec quelques minuscules particules en suspension. Puissants aromes boisés de chenes et de vanille. Moyennement sucrée, légèrement amer et tres boisé. Je serais curieux de gouter a cette biere sans le vieillissement en fut de chenes. Elle est relativement douce en bouche, avec une légère effervescence et une finale moyennement astrigente. Offre des saveurs de fruits rouge avec une touche de miel, mais le boisé prend pratiquement toute la place. Tres bonne biere.

Pours a bright ruby red, nose is super boozy. Tastes too much of whiskey, super dry, lacks amber character.

Bottle courtesy Sean. Fresh bourbon, slightly roasted malt, scotch, and light oak in the aroma. Peat-like taste with raisin alcohol notes. Malt and caramel come through more as it warms and the finish remains clean. Some sweet fruit noticeable just before the finish.

Pours dark with a slight head. Sweet at first sip, with warm malts and slight caramel taste, then a bourbon and coffee finish. Definitely a sipping beer at 10.2%

Big nose, slight bourbon nose, vanilla oak, malty sweetness. Flavor is sweet malt, some caramel with hints of bourbon, a tinge of alcohol as it warms. A little thin in the mouth.

Bottle split with Jredmond. Dont remember a hell of a lot, but this was really nice for style. Alcohol hidden very well.

12oz bottle. Poured a hazy reddish amber color with a small white head. The smell is bourbon and cola. The taste follows suit with mellowed bourbon and sweet cola flavors. I’m not really a scotch ale guy, but it you can hide 10%abv in something this well, then I’m onboard the down bound train...

Holy crap, this is tasty. If you the regular old Dirty Bastard, then you will love this. It is like regular bastard with a pile of comlex oakiness, vanilla, bourbon... Too much to explain. Each sip is different and complex. This stuff is amazing!
