3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a hazy brown color with a minimal off-white head. Spots of lacing. The aroma was mostly booze and malts. The flavor was a bunch of thick, chewy malts and booze. Medium to full bodied. Alcohol was well hidden and it never felt oily or slick. Something to share on a cold winters night, not an everyday thing.
