Big thanks to BA supercolter for sending this my way. 750 ml waxed dipped bottle served in a Half Acre snifter. 2012 Vintage. A: Pours a dark sienna brown color with some ruby highlights. A thin tan head forms on the pour and leaves some splotchy lace behind. S: Fruity with a sweet Jack Daniels backing. Peaty with a sweet toffee presence and some brown sugar as well. T: Caramel goodness with a smokey and peaty underlay. Jack with some dark fruit flavors and a touch of toasted malts. M: Meidum bodied with a medium carbonation level. Sweet finish with a nice drinkability. O: The wasn’t quite on the level of some of the other BA Scotch Ales, but it was a very nice beer and I’m glad we didn’t have any issues of infection. Serving type: bottle

Dirty brown pour with a well retained white head. Aroma really had me nervous that this was infected. There was a sour vinegar smell on top of light caramel notes. Thankfully the taste is much better. Caramel, whiskey, tobacco, and a hint of over-ripe fruit define the taste. Pretty good beer.

Frank (3197) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2014
This is a clear red brown color, with an off-white head of fine bubbles. It has a vanilla nose w/ some cherry and coconut as well--pretty typical whiskey barrel stuff. It is sweet, thick and syrupy. There is a decent oxidized sherry character here but also an ugly bit of vegetable bitterness and some alcoholic harshness. It smell all right but the flavor flaws are too much to overlook in this one.

TheAlum (6117) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Offering shared at RateBeer Grand Tasting 2014 (St. Louis, MO). Pours a deeper brownish hue, darker middle with more glow on the edges. Frothy tannish head is a nice layer, mellow lacing. Aromas are sweet and sticky, caramel and oak meet some spirit, richer stone fruit, gentle marmalade. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a bit toasty, decent barrel, some carmelization and toast. Mellow vanillin, middle is vanilla, a bit of creaminess hit the backend. Some toast, carmelized elements. A bit more body with gentle sweeter malts, toffee and caramel. Some biscuit and mellow sweetness. Red fruit, vanillla, and oak taper out. A bit hot up front but still shows some healthy base into the backend. Not bad

On tap at the brewery, dark brown pour with an off white head. Aroma of oak, whiskey and alcohol. Taste is some vanilla, light caramel, alcohol tingles on the tongue, it's alright. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
