Big and delicious for your perty mouth. Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts. A bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark cherries. Its a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

Side by side with Dirty Bastard. Deep reddish brown, maybe a little thicker than DB. Aroma is quite different - a lot of bourbon, oak, hot alcohol vapour in addition to a light smokiness. Taste is lots of smoky malt, some sweet caramel and a ton of oaky bourbon. This is a fantastic sipping beer. Lives up to the hype!

Easily the best Old Ale (Im calling it old ale because it doesnt taste very wee heavy at all) Ive ever had, besides Curmudgeons Better Half. Just wonder bourbon scent, caramel, syrup . . . bourbon in beer form. Fills the palate with warmth and sweetness. Earthy a tad. Excellent!!

Take one of my favorite beers and throw it in a bourbon barrel...cant beat that. As this warmed up a bit, the taste just got better and better. Caramel malt mixes with some brown sugar and bourbon made this taste pretty amazing. I cant wait to see how this ages.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Serving: Draft at Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a dark brown color with a thin, light tan head. The nose is rich and vinous with notes of bourbon and stone fruit. The flavor has a good bit of bourbon with sweet, dark caramel, fruitcake, fig, and dried cherries. A slight earthiness lasts start to finish. Rich in body with a good bit of drying alcohol on the back end. Potent for sure, the alcohol is obvious from start to finish and very warming on the way down. Perfect for cold winter days.

Garbageman (487) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - NOV 11, 2012
From bottle. Pours dark red/brown with little to no head. Aroma is sweet bourbon with a raisin, dark fruit smell. Taste follows with a boozy burn. A little sharp.

jlruthven (609) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2012
2012 bottle. Pours dark, clear brown with ruby hints. Latte-colored head that dissipates pretty quickly. Big bourbon punch right up front, but quickly recedes and coalesces into the other elements: smoked peat, burnt toffee, bits of cherry and spice. Low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. A little hot on the finish, but otherwise pretty great.

jahshuwuh (567) - USA - NOV 11, 2012
Dark amber brown with a small off white head, that sticks around the rim. Smells of caramel and bourbon, oak and a tinge of earthiness. Sweet vanilla caramel taste that's pretty boozy, a little of the bourbon comes through and some spice at the finish. Very good sipper. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
