COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark Burgundy in color. Aged in a bourbon barrel for 6 months, this wonderfully large version of a Scotch ale would be understated as a 120 Shilling Ale.

Pours a dark mahogany with a white head. Has a caramel, bread, and fruit aroma. Flavor is similar, with some sweet bourbon and vanilla notes. Quite good.

On tap. Weak head, aromas of bacon, ham, deli meat. deep red color. Taste is fruity, punch, aftertaste that lingers is one if crisp apple, and cherry. Best Scottish Ale I’ve tasted hutherto.

12 oz bottle thanks to Crajun. Poured a beautiful deep amber into a snifter. Huge nose of candy, dark fruit, caramel & booze. Big malt forward flavor, the peat is subtle but the boozy sugars are quite present. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jkwood04 (4155) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 9, 2014
2012 12oz bottle in a thistle. Pours deep ruby/brown with a cream-colored head. Aroma of chocolate and toffee and cereal from the malts, some bourbon and oak, slightly roasted malts, hints of vanilla and spices, and some light dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of it all. Smooth, thicker texture.

kevinator (1056) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Truly tasty. The aroma was sweet with oak and bourbon. Dark burgundy as the description suggests with a thin head. Smooth and velvety with good weight. The carbonation was appropriate. Great blend of strong flavors with sweet burnt malts, woody and bourbon. The bitterness was not high but just enough. Great after-dinner drink. Alcohol was well hidden. A must try.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Tap: Deep ruby & mahogany tones all around with a super small spattering of gray & khaki-tinted bubbles sifting along the top. Aroma packed with fruity esters, grapes, dates, plums, red apple skins, & mild back-end anise. Hidden underneath is a solid helping of toasty toffee, mild nuts, & a hint of peppery phenol, likely from the yeast. Taste hits with sweet malt & brash yeast up front; toffee, licorice, plums, lightly vinous grape skins, faint molasses... Finish is more yeast heavy with white pepper, spicy & fruit esters, & mild phenol. Lots of sticky toffee & a hint of nuttiness in the finish. Reminds me of a Scotch ale that uses Belgian yeast. Solid.

12 ounce bottle thanks to umich03jm. Thanks! Pours a dark amber with a beige head of foam that dies down at a moderate rate. The aroma has a ton of malt character. Sweet caramel, some booze, toffee. Taste is more of the same with big notes of caramel and toffee, but there’s also some dark fruit character here as well. As it develops in the glass, it really mellows out and gets that raisin and fig characteristic that I love from old English Barleywines like Thomas Hardy’s. The mouthfeel on this is smooth and chewy with a lower carbonation. Mouthcoating without being heavy.

12 oz from umich03. Deep brown color with a red hue. Aroma is a little bourbon with some wood an vanilla. Flavor is smooth and candi sugar caramel. Deep rich flavors. Smooth and subtle nice. Good scotch ale base beer with that flat cola flavor I love. Been liking for this for a while and it was worth the wait.
