On tap as a vintage BA scotch ale. This fucking blows. Sweet as it can be, burnt rubber. flat, disgusting.

Cybercat (3435) - Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Strong aroma has a fruity and vaguely fishy overtone, with notes of malt and yeast. Pours a clear dark sepia with a nice wheat head. Flavor has firm fruity - pear with a little banana and apple - malty and cloves notes, and, hello, quite an alcohol bite. Well it is 10% ABV. Texture has decent fizz and thickness - and a serious alcohol edge. Overall, edgy and lively, decent flavor.

22oz bottle. Clear, copper color, light tan fizz. Aroma of old malt, vanilla, definitely oak in the nose. Butter toffee flavor, sweet malt. Tastes old, oxidation flavors. Pretty strong. (3599)

madvike (2784) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle shared by rschnake...thanks Rob! - Pours clear amber with a ring of white head. Nose is lightly smoky malt, with a big breay maltiness, and a little yeast.Taste is the same, with a bit more smokiness and a bit of a rubber taste to it. Thin body with ample carbonation. Interesting.

daknole (9401) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Brown pour, light brown head. Aroma is all barrel, vanilla, bourbon, oak, light peat and something a bit tart. Flavor again is all barrel. Maybe too much contact time? A hint of something tart/vegetal in the finish. I didnt enjoy this.

Poured from a 1 liter flip top. Large tart nose, fruity, caramel, some bready notes, some nail polish. Very interesting, this beer really grew on me.

Fantastic. I love their Scotch ale to begin with, add in some bourbon flavor/aroma and a nice burn.... superb.

alobar (2829) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Surprised this rates as low as it does. Pours a hazy amber color with a tall off-shite head. Aroma of bourbon,vanilla, caramel, and a hint of chocolate. Very present bourbon flavor with vanilla, caramel, and chocolate present. Really nice beer.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2011 Maybe Iím crazy, but I thought this stuff was really good. Pours a beautiful deep copper color with a very small head. The aromas are explosively deep with rich vanilla, heavy caramel, oak, and choclate. Just a wonderul aroma. The flavor is much the same with the flavors being deep and heavy on the tongue. Itís rich, but itís not over the top and definitely not cloying. Great stuff!
