750ml Bottle: Aroma of bourbon, alcohol, oak, peat, vanilla, wood, grapes, and some nuts. Poured mahogany brown with a hint of ruby in color with a large, fizzy, rocky, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of bourbon, alcohol, smoke, peat, vanilla, wood, scotch, cola, toffee, cream, and a hint of nuts. Full body. Lightly thick, viscous, coating texture. Soft to average carbonation. Lightly sweet, bourbon, vanilla, smoke, and toffee finish is creamy and lingers a long time.

hopdog (11540) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2008
750ml bottle. Poured a medium to deeper mahogany color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, wood, peat, earthy, some smoke and some nuts. Wow, this one smelled great. Tastes of caramel, vanilla, bourbon, wood, nuts, raisins, and a light earthiness. Sweet but no where near cloying. The barrel aging was very nicely done and I’m glad I have few more of these!

25.9 oz bottle. Clear purple brown with a fluffy tan head. Nose is bourbon, peat, grape and wood. Sharp and tingly, medium light, with a nice touch of oily smoke. Taste is slightly sweet scotch and cola with a dry, nutty, bourbon finish. A thoroughly enjoyable Scotch Ale.
