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.

Tap at local cantina. Nose is all bourbon and vanilla and taste is the same. Strength is good but that's about it. Less of an ale by far than It should be. Won't order again. Feels like my mouth got bill cosby'ed.

Skinnyviking (8188) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2015
Sample at Taphouse. Low but lasting creamy light brown head. Pitch black body. Roasted malt caramel coacoa with weak hints of whisky. Sweet and mild roasted malt caramel with a fair amount of hops bitterness, hints of whisky and spices but not the expected vanilla from the barrels. Low carbonation. Long sweet finish. Alcohol nicely hidden by the sweetniess of the beer. Very well balanced.

kidobutai (575) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2015
From a tap at the Yard House Virginia Beach. Even after carried from the bar it had a decent head remaining. Lacing stays forever. The aroma is alluring, like you’re about to do shots of bourbon. Smooth going down like bourbon too.

EyeAmBaldman (459) - Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Pours a translucent mahogany from the tap with a thick off white head. Aroma is straight caramel, which drew me in. Love the smell of this beer. Smells like maple syrup in there as well. Carbonation is high, burns the throat as it goes down. Bourbon is lighter than expected on the tongue and dissipates quickly. Seems to be some scotch flavor there on the backend. I didn’t care for the Dirty Bastard but this is really good. It’s rich, like caramel amd bourbon melded together. Such a good beer, why did I wait so long to try this?

SteveOrz85 (175) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2015
Poured from 12 oz glass into tulip. Three finger off white head thins a small ring leaving heavy lacing. Beer is dark in color and appears almost black except when held in front of light when it is a mahogany. Aroma is butterscotch and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and lightly bitter with notes of peat and butterscotch. This is a medium bodied beer with creamy texture and soft carbonation. A long velvety smooth finish. Great beer. Hope I can get my hands on some more.

2015 Poured, dark reddish brown with a thin white head, from 12oz bottle into a glass. Aroma of slight alcohol and butterscotch. Taste of caramel and cherries with a taste of whiskey towards the end. Very nice beer, easy to drink, hides the abv very well.
