JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Brown color, with a hint of orange when held to the light. Small tan head of smooth, creamy looking bubbles. Sweet aromas of toffee, bourbon, coconut, light fruit and beer nuts. (7+) Sweet toasty start. Plenty of bourbon, caramel and toasted malt. Oak and mild charcoal wander about. I seem to be catching some peat/iodine (not a bad thing in my book). A touch warm on the back of the palate. A bourbon lovers type brew. 8/13

malrubius (2894) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 6, 2017
Bottle from Meditrina. Garnet red brown with ring. Woody caramel boozy bourbon vanilla burnt brown sugar aroma. Sweet roasted maple syrup brown sugar caramel with a hint of ripe cherry and raisin balanced with assertive but not astringent woody spicy piney long bitter finish. Slightly sticky but more like booze than cough syrup. Full body. I’m not usually a fan of long bitterness and sticky but when they’re done right, they’re FUCKING AMAZING.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate caramel, toffee, chocolate, fruit, vanilla, light bourbon, and a touch of oak. It pours a dark brown with a faint orange glow. It has a one finger khaki head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some sticky webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and caramel with some lighter toffee and fruit. The finish has some mild earthy bitterness, light vanilla, coconut, bourbon, oak, and a hint of alcohol. It’s medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel.

ajnepple (6606) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2017
On tap at El Bait Shop. Dark brown appearance with a light brown head. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, vanilla, bourbon and a hint of toasted oak. Similar flavor, adding medium to heavy sweetness with a rich, lingering finish. Full body with a smooth, creamy feel. One of the best Scotch ales I have ever had, the barrel aging adds some nice complexities.

SG111 (1820) - New York, USA - JAN 7, 2017
Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours deep brown, tan head. Aroma is bourbon, caramel, toffee, sugar sweetness. Flavor is bourbon, caramel, bit of roasted malt, toffee, dark fruit. Really nice. Not as good as backwoods bastard but next best barrel aged scotch ale.

4.1
luttonm (6268) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Thanks to Prufrockstar! Darkest red-amber pour, thin ring off-white foam. Leathery rich body, deep raisin and grape skin. Barrel is well behind and a welcome rounding note. Lovely rich balance, dried dark fruits. Smooth alc hit. Nice barrel depth. Lovely beer.

TimE (5808) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 2, 2017
Dark brown color. Dark brown color. Very Sweet malty nose with tons of bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, dark fruit in the nose. The carbonation is a bit too strong, which takes away from the mouth feel totally. Tons of bourbon in the mouth with lots of molasses and brown sugar. Good but depth isn’t world class. Good stuff

vyvvy (6460) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2016
It pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma has nuttiness, smooth rich malt, vanilla, toffee, milk caramel and marshmallows. The Atoma is a thing of beauty. It has a thick rich body with light carbonation. The taste has super rich caramel, nuts, heavy toast, some sweetness and good amount of barrel notes with vanilla, oak and wood grain. Excellent.

yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2016
Il faut aimer le style, et beaucoup. Ça tombe bien, je l’aime particulièrement suite à un faste repas de pattes de porc enrobées de leur barde de couenne, tel le veut la tradition familiale Lévesque lorsque arrive le réveillon de Noël. Liquide sombre et profond aux reflets brunâtres à peine perceptibles et ce, même dans la lumière. Arômes très sucrés de mélasse, de sucre d’orge, de malts suintant le bourbon. C’est chaud, c’est Noël. Quwlques notes épicées qui se conjuguent correctement à l’alcool. Une chance que c’est Noël car je me vois mal arriver avec un 6 pack de cette bière lors d’un BBQ de la Saint-Jean. Goût de caramel et d’un bourbon flambé. Beaucoup de corps alors soutenu par une effervescence très agréable. Palalet évolutif passant dune attaque douce à une finale alcoolisée et astringente. Plaisante à petites doses.

rumproasts (5356) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Bottle. Brown with one finger head. Sweet brown sugar and caramel with a hint of smoke. Medium bourbon, surprisingly smooth. Quite well done.
