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.

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.

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.

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

I kept trying to find something wrong with it, but I couldn't find anything. Really like drinking a fine spirit. Boozy, but balanced with soft hints of vanilla. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A dark reddish brown beer with a medium tan head. The aroma is malty, vanilla, alcohol, and wood. The flavor is sweet malt with wood, alcohol, and bread. A nice creamy body, too.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2015 12oz bottle from Kalamazoo megabev. Pour is dark brown like cola, reddish hues. Head is offwhite sort of orangeish looking, quarter inch high. Moderate lacing. Smells like alcohol, maple, supple leather and perhaps a hint of cheddar? Tingly mouth feel, fairly low carbonation. More maple and vanilla in the taste, then whiskey and honey, slightly bitter pine hops are detectable as well. Finish is scotch flavored and has an alcoholic burning tingle. Updated 23-May-2013: Bottle aged from October 2012 . Liquid appearance the same but no head. Smoother, sweeter aroma. Same scents just less harsh. Smoother flavor as well, bitter malts reminiscent of most scotch ales, even more vanilla and possibly less maple flavored than fresh. Definitely a little bit better. 21-March-2015: Appearance unchanged from last time. Aroma is deep dark fruits, bourbon, molasses, similar to previous but harsher than description. Mouthfeel not tingly but oily and creamy. Flavor is verging on grain alcohol. Wouldnt recommend aging for 2.5 years.
