Can smell the bourbon and a little smoke. Oh, this is a completely different beer than the Pipers. Much sweeter, somewhat reminiscent of a very thin barleywine and with less hops. Pretty decent Scotch.

Dark amber color with a smaller tiny bubbled light taupe head. Hearty malts with some dark toffee, peat, and a touch of cask wood. Seems to have mellowed in the barrel. The artificial smoke I detected in other versions has been replaced by a mild peat and hint of vanilla bourbon. Caramel and dark brown sugar still in the flavors. The barrel seems to be a friend to this one.

Thanks to CaptainCougar for the chance to try this beer. The thing I remmber most is how the aroama of bourbon made me shiver. Pours a light brown with a slight off white head. A flavor of bourbon and sweet malt compliment each other well. A good beer that is the last one I remember clearly without looking at my notes.

Thanks to CaptainCougar for sharing this at kps Cleear Party. Pours with a fleeting off-white head over a clear deep brown body. Malty bourbon soaked aroma. Sweet and full bodied; you taste what you found in the aroma. The alcohol is hidden well.

Thanks to CaptainCougar. Poured a clear amber color with a ruby hue and minimal head. Big bourbon and vanilla aroma. sugary sweet. There was a hint of cooked egg whites. I dont even know why I thought that. The flavor was sweet and malty with bourbon, caramel, vanilla and sugar.

From a swing top 1 liter bottle with the words, " Brewmaster Limited Release" on the front label, a small amount of info on the right side of label, sampled at cellar temperature in a chalice. Opened with a loud pop, made a good appearance, poured a clear deeply red hued amber with a foamy beige head that settled into a a thin creamy lacing, good carbonation for a Wee Heavy. Had a rich Wee Heavy nose, smoky peat and slightly pork meaty, caramelized, toffee, molasses and a oak woodiness. A crisp, textured on the tongue and smooth full bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Delicious tasting, smokey peat, meaty, caramel and toffee, dark ripe fruits, caramelized brown sugar, vanilla barrel flavor, tea-like hops and a roasty, molasses sweet, smoky, caramelized malty finish. One of the best Wee Heavy/Scotch Ales I have tried, well worth seeking out and trying before it is gone.

1 liter bottle from discount liquor (God bless Discount liquor!). Nice mahogany color with a nice (if rather small) half inch, light tan head. Aroma is woody, smoky malt and a whiff of bourbon. Flavor is a wonderfully complex mix of smoky malt, earthy hops, sweet bourbon and a dry alcohol finish. Finish gradually fades into a nice lingering smokey aftertaste. Smooth, medium body with a nice level of carbonation. Looking forward to more of these from Sprecher.
