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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 Dark brown with a dark tan head. Big grainy aroma with plum and caramel. Taste is sweet and grainy up front with the caramel and plums following. Some booziness with a bit of heat. Full, slick mouthfeel with plenty of carbonation. Finishes semi-dry.

Dark brown, tiny tan head. Aroma caramel, booze, malt. Medium body. Syrupy milky mouthfeel. Some alcohol. Quite sweet which is ok at first then a bit cloying as it warms. Some chocolate, coffee, caramel, bourbon. Interesting flavors but becomes a bit of a chore to finish.

A milestone beer - Rating 8,000! Alisa brought this one back to me from a trip and came up with a very special way of helping me to celebrate a Ratebeer milestone. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy very dark brown color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet molasses, fig, raisin, wood, cookie dough and caramel. The flavor was cherry, raisin and fig with molasses, black licorice, whiskey, and bread dough. Amazingly long finish. Full bodied. Outstanding.

Dark mahogany pour with a khaki head that fades down to a ring. Oily coating on the glass. Aroma is brown sugar, vanilla, bourbon, toast, and oak. Taste is hot bourbon, caramel, and wood. Body is a little thinner than I would have hoped.
