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.

pours deep copper with an off-white head. nose is vanilla cream and lots of Scotch oak. flavor is similar to the nose with a heavier whiskey emphasis and very rich maltiness. finish is a little thin and very earthy. not my favorite style but definitely an excellent beer.

ttoadee (1072) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Dark amber pour, no real head. Nose is oaky bubbling caramel splashed over a backdrop of dark malt. More sweet than bitter. Middle is heaven... butterscotch layered over dark roasted malt, mingled with bourbon soaked wood and earthy hops. Finish is a little boozy & sweet. Ridiculously good.

Bif (1797) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 31, 2015
On tap. Served a dark mahogany color with a nice tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, whiskey, roasted malt and spice. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, cherries, spice, scotch and bit of smoke. Subtle bitterness and a boozy finish. Moderate body, smooth and very well crafted. Great beer to kick back and savor at the end of the day.

Smokey, sweet, malty, definite whiskey characters. Very good beer, a face warmer. Had to roll up my sleeves to get through this one.

HoppyScallywag (177) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2015
This is a strong ass ale. Cherries and scotch pop out right away with a strong warmth. The scotch continues to build on the palate but stays mild. This is pretty dang good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A lot going on in there. Flavours of toffee, toffee apple, coconut and raisin leading to a dry, sweet, warming boozy finish. Nice.
