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.

Skyview (5154) - 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.

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.

Bottle at Butters Big Cellar Blowout. Pours a beige head with a copper body. Smells of vanilla, oak, and some malt and fresh hops. Flavor is vanilla, oak, caramel, and bourbon. Finish is slightly bitter and bourbon. Old moonshiner man bottle label is awesome.

12 ounce bottle. This beer seemed to pour very thick. I am not sure if it is how I poured it or if it is a characteristic of the beer. It had a very deep amber color with a one finger width tan head that stuck around for a good while. The aroma consists of a lot of caramel malt, a lot of bourbon and alcohol, and some light smoke in the background. As the beer warmed, I could smell some dried fruit also. My first sip of this beer had a huge alcohol warming. It also consisted of caramel and roasted malts, light bourbon, and some dark dried fruit. Overall, this was a very good scotch ale but I would prefer Dirty Bastard to this one...

12 oz bottle courtesy of TheEpeeist. Wonderful. Pours a thicker brownish rusty amber, with small tannish head that laces some and sticks around. Aromas are similar to the original, pushing caramel and vanilla over light roast, toffee and biscuits, with light peat and moving to some nice oak that accentuates these flavors well, pushing more oak and vanilla and bourbon. Exciting. Initial is full bodied, picking up more oak and bourbon up front, trailing into vanilla and caramel with toffee and biscuits, light peat and smoke. A bit of warmth, but pretty smooth overall. A bit of bitterness on the backend balances, and oak and vanilla with caramel and bourbon seem to leave an impressive aftertaste with that touch of warmth. Good body, strong. Cheers!
