The best bourbon ale I've ever had. Granted I haven't had many, but the bourbon overtones in this are clear, and a perfect compliment to the rest of the recipe. Maybe there're using a better barrel source than others, barrels that had really good bourbon in them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2015 A beautiful Scotch with the right combination of malt and raisin, bolstered by a strong bourbon presence on the back of the palate.

Rich malty and sweet, smooth as silk, an exceptional beer. The bourbon barrel aging really brings a caramel flavor forward. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Central Waters has an impressive lineup of different beers and this one is my favorite. Very smooth and slightly sweet taste. Not really like any other scotch ales but it’s probably the best I’ve had. Smooth, Dark and potent. I also recommend the CW Loch Ness Scotch Ale.

Dark mahogany with big, foamy, tan head, decent legs / Rich nose of caramel, dark fruit, tobacco, coconut, bourbon, chocolate . . . / Medium to full body, chewy, sweet, excellent balance, lightly bitter / Flavors of chocolate, caramel, date, raisin, coconut, bourbon barrel / Monsterous for a scotch ale. A beauty.

on tap @ local option. scotch and bourbon, what a combo. creamy vanilla. darkly fruity. thought this might be the Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Aged Slainte Scotch Ale http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/182143/ but alexi said the keg collar didn’t say Slainte.

Bottle from Capone’s, Pours thick and turbid dark brown toward mahogany with minimal tan head. Nose is a great beer/spirit hybrid mix of oaky bourbon, earthy dusty malts, molasses, vanilla, tannins. Tastes of huge oak, bourbon, molasses, earthy caramel, with a rich finish and well hidden alcohol. This one is delicious.

On tap at the Brewery. Seems more thick and rich this year. Poured medium dark with a small head. Aroma of sweet caramel and bourbon. Rich malty caramel taste. Good touch of oak and bourbon. Never really enjoyed this one until this glass.

Quite excellent. High ABV is very recognizable but not in an overbearing way. Nice dark coloration pours a beautiful tan head. Carbonation level is acceptable and aroma is fantastic. Smooth drinking even with the high ABV It’s a sipper and a very enjoyable one.
