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.

lightly cloudy brownish reddish pour w/ a tall firm small bubbled light tan head. Palate is nice, smooth and creamy. Nice aroma bourbon was my first smell then some caramel and a touch of vanilla a tiny hint of pepper and oak. My only complaint is the aroma drops off w/ the head. Very sweet taste lots and lots of caramel hints of bourbon and oak, a touch of cherries in the finish is quite nice with the bourbon. A delicious beer.

Ugh. Super sweet. I canít say I encountered a whole lot of barrel or bourbon flavor. Just a malt bomb. I probably should have known.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark ruby with one-finger khaki head. Bourbon hits the nose, then some earthy dirt smell, hint of cherry. Great sweet caramel and vanilla and only a hint of bourbon up front. Then just a hint of dry bitter coffee and a long caramel finish. A bit boozy and the bourbon lingers in the back of the throat. Medium body and pretty light carb. The more I drink, it gets more and more boozy, but this is the only negative. Overall, a fantastic beer. I think it could use a bit more smokiness or peat, but i love this as a bourbon aged scotch. Will definitely be seeking this out again.

12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy, deep reddish amber colored body with a finger-width, creamy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is bursting with woody bourbon and vanilla. Once this starts warming up, medium sweet caramels and toffees come in. Some dark fruits as well. Flavor is similar and solid. Lots of vanilla and bourbon, but lots of balancing malts. Caramels and toffees, some fruit, and a light spicing before this finishes with a touch of chocolate and dries with a woody, earthy finish. The hops are somewhat muted by everything else going on, but they offer a light bitterness. Rich malts and plenty of vanilla-bourbon in a long aftertaste. Body is full and smooth with just a touch of soft carbonation. Overall, this was nice. Lots of bourbon and caramel with the vanilla adding a really pleasant sweetness. The woodiness doesnít dry this too much and leaves the body full and smooth. This is clearly dominated by the barrel aging, but it has other things going on that make it quite enjoyable. Good stuff.

Stay calm, okay? Letís not lose our heads. Itís--Itís a fine ID. Itíll--Itís gonna work. Itís passable, okay? This isnít terrible. I mean, itís up to you, Fogell. This guy is either gonna think "Hereís another kid with a fake ID" or "Hereís McLovin, a 25 year-old Hawaiian organ donor." Okay? So whatís it gonna be?

this may be my favorite sippiní brew. i bought a four pack of 12 oz bottles from lighthouse beer and wine on jasonís recommendation. i enjoyed two a few weeks back and finally got around to drinking the last one this evening. what happened to the third one you ask? my girlfriend crushed it one night. she likes blue moon. if you enjoy good beer. give this one a shot. it is certainly a tasty nightcap brew. quite rare, so buy a couple of four packs and hide them from your old lady.

Absolutely loved this beer. Clear dark amber with a big creamy tan head that stayed and laced the glass. Huge aroma of scotch whiskey, fruit, vanilla. Flavor is similar with with a nice balance, nothing over powering. Very creamy and warming finish. Excellent.
