UPDATED: SEP 21, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours long black with a small lightly yellowed head. Nose is bourbon straight up. As it warms, loads of coconut and lamington tones come out. Awesome. Taste is very coconut forward with light vanilla tones and bourbon all round. It’s like a chocolate, coconut scroll. Crazy beer. Hugely unique. Freaking good. Finishes with a sharp coconut covered date tone. Perfect. Unbelievable beer Ionlyrate5s (103) - New York, USA - SEP 18, 2014
I loved the non bourbon barrel and I loved this one as much. The barrel added an additional dimension to the already wonderful silky caramel rich brew. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2009
My god CCB does it again. Amazing. Dark brown pour, tan head. Aroma is really wonderful. Tons of bourbon, toffee, vanilla, oak and dark dried fruit. Flavor is loaded with smooth oak and bourbon notes, some vanilla, caramel, light smoke and holy hell what a mouthfeel. This one is a big step up from the regular big sound. WOW. But what do I konw, I am just a homer. Billicus (291) - @RED BHUT JOIKIAS!, Paulsboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2013

UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 From the 3/2012 3R6P tasting. Simply amzaing.+++Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured thick, black and oily with a medium sized foamy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was vanilla, cocoa, coconut, sweet malts and chocolate syrup. The flavor was vanilla, chocolate syrup, coconut, toasty malts, light fruity hops and a hint of cream. The finish was long cream, vanilla, coconut and chocolate syrup. Thick and full body. Wonderful

Damn. This is good. Real good. Very sweet, though. Like a dessert, but not overly sweet that you can’t easily drink an entire bottle on your own. The bourbon barrel aging almost adds a more caramel maltiness to the already malty scotch ale. A lot of toffee, caramel, brown sugar and milk chocolate on top of a malt bomb. There’s a little oak and the bourbon is sweet and accentuates everything. This is amazingly good and easy to drink. This would be on my Top Ten list for beers to drink for the rest of my life.

Bottle from JdubFL - thanks! Reddish-brown pour with an aroma of vanilla, bourbon, dark fruits and brown sugar. Flavor has maple, vanilla/wood/bourbon, chocolate, dark fruits, and assorted sweet goodies. Monster mouthfeel - this is awesome and gives Alesmith’s BA Wee Heavy a run for its money. rejtable (2809) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 25, 2013
Man, this is a huge beer! Pours cola with a light head that fades quickly to a ring. No lacing. Nose is bourbon. Aromas of dark fruit, toffee, maybe even molasses, bourbon, oak and a hint of coffee. Not sure I’m getting much out of the scotch side. Tastes are bit sweet with some limited bitterness in the background. Really sticky in he mouth. One of the best beer I’ve had in a looooong time. gkost (1069) - Alaska, USA - AUG 1, 2009
Pours a deep brown with tan head. Nose is bourbon, wood, some smoke, alcohol, roasted grain, raisin, and sweet caramel. Flavor is dark fruits, whiskey, vanilla, wood, some charred grain, plum, raisin and caramel. The bourbon is so very smooth. Makes this beer very very enjoyable.
