12 oz bottle from a trade. Silky smooth chocolate and hazelnuts. Rich and velvety with the added flavor of the vanilla from the barrel. weihenweizen (4301) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a snifter. Dark brown with small beige head. Aroma is rich caramel, medium body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is caramel, toffee, some nice bourbon, and a little oak. Really nice scotch ale. RRistow12 (994) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2018
Tasted from bottle. Pours black with beige head. Aroma is bourbon, toffee, caramel. Thick and sticky on the mouthfeel. Flavors of maple syrup, caramel, toffee, nutty, dark fruits, bourbon. Bourbon adds nice flavor but not overpowering. Excellent scotch ale. Definitely top tier.

Rated in Jan. 2017 give or take... Pours dark amber with a tan head. The aroma is really dominated by the bourbon but that's fine by me. I like bourbon. The flavor is sweet, malty, and full of bourbon with some caramel under there too. Smooth, full bodied, warming. Very good. ebone1988 (2289) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Bottle from Merchants. Aroma is caramel, bourbon, barrel, vanilla, dark fruit, decadent, not a real booze presence which I like. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head, opaque. Taste is bourbon, barrel, caramel, raisins, vanilla, dark fruit, woody, it's good. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy body, light carbonation, caramel bourbon barrel aftertaste. Overall, this is quite nice. GregMooreNH (380) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 31, 2017
Pours dark brown with aggressive head that leaves substantial lacing. Aroma is bourbon, followed by nuts and bread. Taste is sweet plum with spices mixing in, leading to the bourbon profile in the aftertaste. An exceptional scotch ale that is for sipping slowly and enjoying thoroughly. cards04 (2949) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 26, 2017
