Pour is clear burnt brown with red hues and a light yellowish head. Nose is strong charred wood and fairly deep malt aromas. Chocolate, bourbon, burnt caramel and brown sugar. Taste is the same, chocolate, woody, cooked caramel and brown sugar, notes of peat and bourbon through the finish. Body is soft and airy, not too thick with good carbonation but thins out in finish and a little watery. Not a bad beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a minimal head, over a hazy, dark amber brown (SRM 18) body.....nose is light whiskey, vanilla, toffee/caramel, light dried fruits, hints of cocoa....taste is sweet malts, with hints of toffee/caramel, dried fruits including plum, raisin, hints of cocoa, minimal hops finishing with sugar sweetness....mouth feel light of medium, sticky, carbonation low adding tingle. This is a very sugar sweet rendition of Scotch Ale. The bourbon barrel was done with a light hand, malt complexity was present but dominated by simple sweetness. It really needed either greater malt depth of complexity or greater attenuation. BJCP 7/2/11/4/6

DrSilverworm (6277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz screw-top bottle, thanks to chuckaduck. Mildly hazy red orange brown color -- sort of a brick color. Minimal off-white head, no lace sticks. Caramel malt, some dark fruit, a lot of nice good chocolate flavor in this, some light vanilla and spiciness in the finish, fudge. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, light spicy. A light bite in the finish. Medium-plus body. Lighter carbonation, dry finish. Reasonably smooth. Solid, complex barrel-aged scotch ale.

valpoaj (623) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle pour - clear reddish brown pour...not much head to speak of, and what’s there disappears almost instantly. Aroma is very oaky and full of caramel malt...catching a hint of vanilla and a hint of a spicy/peppery note. Flavor is good...the sweet malts shine...woodsy...hint of bourbon, but its in the background. Palate is light to medium bodied...slightly thin for what I’d like to see. Good, but far from great offering from Tyranena, though their price point for their BGW series still rocks!

SHIG (3561) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle thanks to Hubsluvsbeer: Poured a murky brown with a whisper white head. Aroma is woodsy, with thick malt and toffee. Taste is a rich caramel malt, light burnt wood, vanilla hints and finishes sweet sticky.
