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.

greco (41) - Zeeland, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2009
On tap at the Hopcat in Grand Rapids. Bourbon dominates the nose. Nice creamy head. I usually look for subtle bourbon but the bourbon dominates this. I got very little nose or flavor other than bourbon and for me that isnít good.

surffisher (198) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2009
12 oz. bottle. Pours cloudy, but somewhat translucent reddish-brown, with a small white head. Aroma is very scotchy - peat, oak, and some smoke and sweet malts, molasses as it warms. Flavor is again peaty and scotchy, but with a nice sweet malty backbone and some spice and fruit. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth. Interesting, enjoyable beer.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Sampled from 12-oz bottle supplied by joebrew. Pours a semi-clear copper amber colored brew with a nice off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of vanilla, some dark pitted fruit and a touch of bourbon. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of caramel malt, vanilla, some flowery hops, bourbon and a touch of smoked oak. Finish is semi-sweet with a light vanilla and alcohol warmth aftertaste.

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark bronze with a a small white head. Strong aroma of bourbon with a hint of vanilla and smoke. Flavor is heavy on the bourbon and vanilla. This one doesnít impress me... comes across too bourbony, and the flavors donít mix well with the style of beer.
