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.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a clear dark amber with a sparse tan head that laces great. Smells boozy, definitely taste the bourbon. Woodsy flavor. I’m not getting a lot of hop flavor. Malty with a strong bourbon backbone. Nice.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique August 2013. Great beer with a dark brown colour and a swirling mist of foam. Fills the mouth with vanilla, toffee and caramel flavours.

Pours dark brown with thin head. This one smells like a bottle of find bourbon with a hint of malt. Taste is super smooth notes of vanilla toffee and caramel. Perfectly balance flavor. Medium body, low carbonation. Loved this one.

rollinsr (368) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUN 23, 2014
Pours a cloudy chestnut brown with minimal head. Aroma is figgy with dark and sweet malts. Flavor is very sweet and masks the abv very well. There is nothing to dislike about this brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salmoniform (465) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Hazy brown hue with light brown fizzy head. Aroma is prunes, chocolate, oak, vanilla, plums. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a light body and zesty carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a wood astringency in the following and ethanol finish. Overall this is a decent brew but a bit thin for my taste.

knights97 (104) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2014
A full body with a motor oil color for appearance with a nice liquor taste. This is a perfect desert beer that should be enjoyed and not chugged like any normal beer. Very nice oak barrel taste to and did they do a great job of aging it. The prefect beer to enjoy at the brewery

Bourbony. Wood. Oak. Light caramel brown color. Hot. Licorice? Caramel. Not my kind of thing but if you like barrels give this a go.

Fantastisk öl. Fjärde jag dricker sen den kom på SB. Underbar maltkropp och lagringen gör det lilla extra.
