fletchfighters (1063) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2013
12 oz bottle at hair of the dog 2011 vintage Murky brownish black color and a thin light brown collar. Took a bit to get a reasonable head with this. Mostly a thin layer. Nose was dark fruits, vanilla, chocolate, bourbon, coconut and soy sauce. Turned more towards soy as it warmed. Taste was pretty similar to nose. Soy crept in more as it warmed and enveloped the beer. Low carbonation, medium feel but a lot of soy sauce in the end. Walked away going it was kind of meh

collinthib (8) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2013 does not count
Amazing beer. Aroma has notes of chocolate, petey smoke, and leather. This is the closest scotch smell I have ever smelled from a beer. Palate is sweet but not cloyingly so; smokey flavor really comes through. Smooth and just a finish of bitterness makes this beer amazing.

Very sweet, warm, bourbony. It has a great, deep old a little flavor that is very complex and very familiar at the same time.
