COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fergus Mor: the legendary king of Dal Riata was the founder of Scotland according to Medieval and Renaissance myth. Rulers of Scotland throughout its history have claimed descent from Fergus Mor. A fitting name for this, the first beer in the Campeador series, a barrel aged collaboration of Cigar City Brewing and Knightly Spirits. Fergus Mor is a blend of Big Sound Scotch Ale and Bolita Brown Ale, topped off with a wee bit of Imperial Stout and aged in a Buffalo Trace bourbon barrel. Limited release of 204 - 750ml bottles.

Pours murky amber with deeply oxidized rusty edges and tan head. The aroma is bold and crafty and full of homer-istic nuances like cedar, some whiskey, vanilla, some smooth sweetly slick oaky goodness and a mild nuttiness in the background. The taste is . . . wow! I get a wave of rich sweet malts and nuttiness initially and then it blends into sweet whiskey and vanilla. Toward midway chocolate and nuttiness come to the front along with splintery cedar wedges. Whiskey booze, vanilla and molasses notes take over the flavor into the finish. Lots of complex stuff going on here in my glass. Fantastic mouth feel.

22oz bottle pours a transparent, watery, deep copper brown with very little, spitty head. Nose is boozy, rum, coconut, a little apple brandy, cookie dough, malts, brown sugar. Flavor is cold coffee, vanilla extract, chocolate, bread, coconut, wood pulp. Finish is full bodied and sticky. Pretty good, but not a revelation.

SudsMcDuff (8488) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Pours a murky brown with a fine head, low lacing .. . wonderful aroma of chocolate vanilla, oak, light whiskey, creamy molasses, disney magic, sweet wood, and light fun brown malts.. . a dangerous level in terms of the mouth, full enough to bring in the praise and general enjoyment with a truly easy level of drinking .. . this is great great stuff, lovely aftertaste, finishes like an ace.. . CCB will turn heads with special brews like this... honored to have tried it.. .

larsga (7656) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2010
Medium brown head. Opaque black body. Dark cocoa and alcohol aroma with milky honey notes. Dry-sweetish alcoholic grainy sugary marzipan taste with oxidized papery chocolate notes. Mid-to-full body. Dry aftertaste of much the same but emphasizing the cocoa. Nice, but too alcoholic. (0.75l bottle shared by kestral.)

CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Bottle shared by wetherel at Woodshop 5.0 (2/20/10): Pours a hazy mahogany with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet dark caramel and chocolate nose with a touch of black cherry tartness. Starts with good fullness and sweet dark caramel maltiness with some raisin and brown sugar complexity before a warming dark chocolatey finish. A pretty good Scotch ale, but could use more peat character.

Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2013
750mL bottle, #202/204. Poured coppery-amber with a smoked beige head. The aroma picked up sweet bourbon and brandy plus nutty malts and vanilla.. warm barrel filled the nose.. loved it! The flavor found tangy oak and bourbon on the tip of the tongue, with sweet chocolate, nutty notes, and lesser toast behind.. sweet boozy notes, vanilla, and nutty malts on the long, warm finish. Medium-plus bodied with low carbonation.. just a tad too sweet, but otherwise delicious!

75cl Bottle at The Good, The Bad & The Ugly tasting. Dark brown colour, beige head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla, sweet malts, caramel, chocolate. Flavour is chocolate, dark fruits, bourbon, bitter hoppy and chocolate finish. Medium to fullbodied. Nice.
