COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Barrel-Aged version of our Scotch-Style ale is matured in premium bourbon barrels for up to one year to add layers of complexity to its rich, malty flavor profile. Notes of vanilla, oak and bourbon from the barrels combine with the beer’s profile of caramel and toffee to make this an utterly unique beer that we think you’ll love. Enjoy it now or let it mature in the bottle for years to come.

Pours opaque chocolate with a decent buff head. Aroma delivers bourbon, roast malt and caramel tones. Flavor nicely echoes the aroma, fairly sweet but not cloying. Mouthfeel features good body and jazzy fizz. More than wee!

750 ml bottle. 2015 vintage. Aromas of bourbon, raisins, a little cola, and sweet roasted malts. Flavors of dark caramel, bourbon, oak, raisins and lots of malts. Much lighter than the barrelled stout and therefore seems more boozy, but still very nice. Doesnt need anymore aging IMHO.

750ml bottle @ Alex’s(Serguy’s Birthday). Pours a mostly opaque brown colour with a small beige head. Nose is huge, rich, and malty... lots of bourbon and oak. Flavour is a spicey-esque profile that derives from the bourbon heat and oak while the sweetness tames it.

Ferris (16300) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle - Vintage 2015 - Crazy bourbon hot woody notes. Deep dark brown with a small light brown head. Big dark toffee notes and tons of bourbon notes. A bit too big and boozy notes.

750ml bottle (thx, Robert G.!) at Alex’s in honor of my birthday and CPA PREP finish. Vintage 2015. Pours a dark brown with beige head. Aroma is sweet, dark fruits, bourbon, woody, and booziness. Taste is chocolate, oily, still hot, dark fruits, slightly buttery, bourbon. Despite it is still boozy, I love it and it is a very nice sipper.

4.1
Klimaet (2960) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2017
Bottle shared, 2012 vintage. Pours thick dark brown with a small offwhite head. Aromas of heavy bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits, licorice, light oxidization, chocolate, malt. Taste is malty, vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, butterscotch, huge caramel, porty notes, subtle bitter malty notes.

kevinator (2622) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2017
Good grief this was good. Burnt bread pudding with caramel and molasses touch with oak and bourbon. Nice dark caramel color with a full and smooth palate. Near perfect.

yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2017
Vintage 2012, gracieuseté de Yannick. Merci l’ami! Clairement le meilleur scotch ale que j’ai bu de ma vie. L’équilibre est parfait: ni trop sucrée, ni trop sirupeuse, ni trop alcoolisée. Toute en finesse, le bourbon n’est pas trop agressif, même au contraire. Ce dernier a je crois aminci cette bière dont la base est plutôt lourde pour moi. Effervescence parfaite et rondeur impeccable. Saveurs de fruits noirs, de caramel, de douce mélasse. Longue en bouche sans jamais écoeurer, un grand coup de coeur pour moi que cette bière qui a déjà 5 ans.

dogfish120love (1339) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Pours a dark brown off white lacing and some floaties. The aroma is heavy vanilla, caramel, heavy bourbon and toffee

ABUSEDGOAT (2828) - California, USA - SEP 29, 2016
Dark brown color, large head, average to below average lace/retention. Aroma is creamy with notes of bourbon, chocolate, caramel, light vanilla. Full bodied, the barrel changes this beer more than a lot of others. It loses any touch of smoke but gets a sweeter choco-caramel thing going with an extremely drinkable vanilla creamy mouthfeel. Unlike a lot of other bourbon barrel beers, it doesn’t have any harshness and the alcohol is completely hidden. A treat, albeit an expensive one.
