COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

timberrr (43) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2013
12 oz. Bottle from 9/28/12 poured into snifter. Pours a deep amber brown almost completely opaque with a small, quickly dissipating light tan head. Aroma of oak, bourbon, vanilla, butterscotch and dark fruit. Flavor has a big hit of bourbon and smokey oak at the start followed up with vanilla, toffee and fig. Leaves a warming bourbon taste on the finish. The mouth feel on this beer is great, nice and smooth. Medium body with low to medium carbonation. Overall a fantastic beer, great balance of woody bourbon with the sweetness and very smooth.

Sjohnh (446) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Dark brown, with a head that is almost yellow while it lasts, which isn’t long. Nice and thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. The barrels have added a very pronounced whisky nose, and it’s a good one, with wood, vanilla and a bit of smokiness. Dried fruit too, which carries into the taste, alongside lots of deep malt, syrup and some smoky spice. Finish is great - lingering pepper and tar. Best scotch ale I’ve had.

Hoprider (160) - DENMARK - JUL 14, 2015
(From tap @ basementbeerbar) A very dark scotch ale -appears almost black in the glas with a small off white head. The nose has raisins, sirup some spice and vanilla. The taste is full with lots of caramel, wood, spice and especially bourbony notes. Like it lots. The mouthfeel is creamy with soft carbonation. The finish is long with primarily the bourbon notes hanging on.

Franckg (470) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2015
Bouteille avec une date de péremption au 17/08/2014, bue en 2015. Vieillissement d’au moins 2 ans. Robe brune foncée aux reflets rubis avec une tonne de gros grumeaux en suspension. Arômes de sucre d’orge , mélasse, caramel, bourbon subtil. En bouche, explosion de saveurs. Gros sucre caramélisé avec le bourbon qui contrairement au nez, est ici beaucoup plus présent. Des saveurs de fruits confits se dégagent, ainsi qu’on côté plus amer de café et de bois. La rondeur du liquide est incroyable. Le bourbon boisé semble vouloir s’emparer de chaque parcelle du palais. L’amertume laisse percer un peu de chocolat et de l’anis. Une petite astringeance nous suit tout le long de la dégustation mais on s’y habitue. Très bonne bière.
