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.

Butters’ cellar blowout tasting. Nice nose of bourbony goodness. Butter, bacon and bourbon barrel on the nose. Buttered biscuity texture. That’s an awesome beer. Wow

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.

This poured a a dark red to brown color with an off white head. aroma was lots of caramel, coffee, some dark fruits and maybe some bourbon too. Flavor was really sweet, some tobacco, sweet malts dark fruits and some chocolate as well maybe. This was a pretty good beer.!

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!

Bottle, courtesy of my in-laws. Very dark brown, good sized tan head. Great aroma - lots of bourbon, tons of alcohol, but smokey woody sweet scotch ale lingers underneath as well. First sip is almost overwhelming - huge alcohol and huge bourbon. But the Scotch Ale shines through again - this is why you need a big solid beer when you do this bourbon stuff - great smokey and woody notes, huge alcohol and by the end the huge bourbon is balanced really well. I was really impressed with this one.

[Tap] Very deep red with tan head. Aroma was smokey with some sweet caramel sneaking through. Taste was roasted and smokey. Sweet caramel and bourban accents. Somewhat thick and very smooth. Fantastic beer, one of my favorites overall.

Rich and complex. Has a strong bourbon flavor with lots of caramel and some cherry and oak flavor. Head dissipates pretty quickly. Smell has caramel bourbon vanilla and oak. This is some really nice bourbon aged beer.

I don’t know what it was, but for some reason, the flavors in this one just did not meld well at all. I had a lot of trouble just finishing it. :(
