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.

All the hoppy bite of the regular bastard are mellowed out by the vanilla sweetness from the oaky aging. Very sweet and malty with an alcohol/syrupy finish. Very good.

Wow, the aroma from this is sensational, I don’t wear aftershave, but if i could take this aroma and put it on my neck I would! Smokey scotch , dark chocolate, boozy cherries. Almost a shame to drink it! The taste is brilliantly balanced, sweet but still very drinkable. A slight carbonation would have made me score it even higher . World class.

stoutnick (385) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2014
On tap at Brewery. Reddish brown. Bourbon smell is good times. Taste is the same but without much other character apart from some bitterness at the end of the palate. Expecting more to be honest.

zimbo (483) - SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2014
UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Tasted in a face off with Tempest Old Parochial. Superb sweet complex bourbon and malt nose. Little head though what is there leaves some good lacing. Deep orangish brown colour.Medium to full bodied and somewhat supple. Very good and tasty. But its mercilessly steamrolled by the bigger deeper and more ’Scotch’ Old Parochial.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2014
Bottle @home. Pours brown, thin tan head. Slight whisky on the nose with some vanilla. taste wise, sweet but also a bit of smoke, creme brulee and a touch of licorice. This is both warming and wonderful.

@Basunen: tydlig söt och maltig doft. Stor fishermansmak av fat, malt och alkohol. Tydlig bourbon i eftersmaken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 355 ml bottle @ Ukkometso
Ruby reddish brown clear beer with dense blonde head. Aroma and flavor have cocoa, creamy toffee, vanilla, dark fruits and some alcohol. Flavor adds some dry wood as well. Finish has a bite of bitterness and ends with alcohol. Mouthfeel is quite oily and thick with medium carbonation. Nice for slow sipping but the flavors are not the most enjoyable to my taste. Also the alcohol is annoyingly strong.
