4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serving: Draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a dark brown color with a thin, light tan head. The nose is rich and vinous with notes of bourbon and stone fruit. The flavor has a good bit of bourbon with sweet, dark caramel, fruitcake, fig, and dried cherries. A slight earthiness lasts start to finish. Rich in body with a good bit of drying alcohol on the back end. Potent for sure, the alcohol is obvious from start to finish and very warming on the way down. Perfect for cold winter days.

35,5cl bottle (2014) probably from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. Pours close to clear copper, but with some sediments, and a modest off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, oak and vanilla, quite massive at first. Sweet dried fruits, caramel, mild spices and some earthy and roasty notes. Massive, complex and very sweet. Certainly a sipper. A bit to sweet and heavy for my taste, but also a quite delicious winter warmer. Hmmm, maybe Iíll try it again next winter.

Bottle @SB. Deep brown and red color. Light brown foam, not long lasting. A very nice aroma, touch of burned sugar, vanilla. Taste is good, medium sweet and nice small bitterness. Old fruits. Really nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle, thanks bytemesis! Aroma consists of coconut, vanilla, wood, peat, cashew brittle, raisins. Pours muddy brown with a dissipating beige head. Taste is sweet, slightly oxidized, earthy, oaky, boozy, dark fruits. Texture is oily, body full. Nice beer, but itís a bit hot and not quite what I was expecting.

Caramel, toffee, massive vanilla tones an a little bitter oak. I love bourbon aged ales. Not a typical scottish ale, which is probably why itís better than most! Extremely good with aged cheeses!

A little too boozy for what I was hoping for. Some nice sweet caramel flavors sit amongst some dark fruit. Good, not worth the hype though.
