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.

2010 bottle. Pours a dark copper, brown color with a white head that goes away quickly. Aroma is whiskey, oak, vanilla, and quite sweet. Wow, this smells good. Taste is malty and oak, with a little bit of bourbon coming through. Very warming. Texture is thin and a little sticky. Nice finish. I look forward to this one every year.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown with sweetish aroma of malts, whiskey, toffee. Can easily taste the alcohol / whiskey taste but surprisingly mellow.

Mainuh_man (243) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2014
12 Oz bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a tan head. Aromas of bourbon and vanilla with some cinnamon. Flavor is sweet with lots of vanilla and bourbon. Strong bitterness comes on at the end, leaving a bourbon and roasted malt linger. Medium-full body with a sticky mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, not a very subtle beer. Lots of bourbon and sweet malt. Not my cup of tea.

Wow, awesome! One of the best beers of this style out there. IMHO, better than Burbon County Stout.

Bourbonsmak i blandad choklad. Söt & maltig karamell. Alkoholen döljs väl. En fantastisk öl! En av mina favoriter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy reddish color with decent lacing and minimal head retention. Tastes of roasted malt, caramel, and deliciousness. A must have!
