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.

Tasted on tap at the brewpub. I preferred the original Dirty Bastard to this one. Nose is big on bourbon, coconut. Pours deep amber with low tan head. Taste is overpowering of bourbon, with sweet malt. Finish is long and bitter.

Smells strongly of wood and vanilla. Deep amber in color. Complex dark ale, sweet an roasty with nice oaky and whiskey tones. One of my favorites.

A deep, hazy, brown pour with hardly any tan head. Bourbon smell mainly (go figure) and some oak, but also a hint of a sweetness I canít quite place. astes of Bourbon to start, which subsides to a sweet malt finish. ow carbonation. The medium body is just short of syrupy. The Bourbon does not take control of this, like Iíve experienced before with other barrel aged beers, and it finishes quite smooth.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2011 Reddish-hued brown pour with a dense tan head that leaves plenty of lacing behind. Aroma is ripe with vanilla, oak, bourbon, toffee, caramel, and smoke. Taste is wonderfully complex. The sweetness is delightful up front, but itís trailed by a warm wave of booze and oak. The booze flavor is not unpleasant, and itís more scotch than bourbon. Some vanilla, smoke, and caramel. Palate is full and rich, definitely a sipper. Really fantastic stuff. Iíd love to drink this outside by a campfire.

Poured a dark brown with no real head. Aroma was a touch of the bourbon, dark fruit and malt. Flavor followed with a hint of caramel and vanilla. Low carbonation. Alcohol was not in the forefront. A good brew.

Bottle Pours a murky brown with a thin tan head. The head leaves quickly, and leaves rings of lacing. Has a good aroma of vanilla, caramel,and whiskey barrels. Has a light cartbonation. The flavor is real good. Strong whiskey barrel but alcohol is not over bearing. has a full body. The texture is slick. A real good finish with a great aftertaste. A smooth good beer. A big beer for sure but vwery drinkable. Well Done.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2011
Enjoyed on tap in a whiskey snifter. The beer pours a semi-opaque deep brown, with essentially no head. The aroma shows characters of the original beer, heavy caramel and toffee, less assertive chocolate; paired with the additional complexity added by the barrels, namely a subtle vanilla. The flavor of the beer is overtly malt, perhaps too much so for some, but still avoids seeming thick or cloying. Alcohol is hidden deftly. Caramel, toffee, vanilla, and chocolate notes again come through. Overall, a beer that takes its place among the great winter warmers; excellent.
