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.

pours an amber red that is clear with no turbidity and a tan head. in my old Scotch aRoma with some vanilla and butterscotch. Taste is strong at first and is more boozy than dirty bastard. Real nice mouth feel

UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Aromas of rich vanilla, butterscotch, peat, toffee, and caramel, with some mild alcohol. Deep, dark ruby with a minimal, beige head. Dry and strong with a roasty bitterness, and flavors of vanilla, bourbon, dried cherries, caramel, and alcohol. Medium bodied and smooth, uniform, with low carbonation and a boozey mouthfeel, finishing with notes of American oak/vanilla and whiskey liqueur. Complex and delicious.

Very dark brown color with zero head and minimal oily lacing. Aroma was sweet with bourbon and vanilla. Flavor was all smoky bourbon and light malts. Pretty good overall

From 2012 bottle, fresh. Pours a deep, dark red, with almost no head. Aroma is good - very boubon heavy - but lacks complexity. The bourbon is still overly strong in the beer itself, but the scotch ale complexity hits in full force after the bourbon starts to die off, giving it a great finish. Mouthfeel is spot on for the style. This beer will probably age well to one or two years old and hit a nice sweet spot. I plan to put a four pack away.

Pours a thick burgundy/brown. No foam to speak of. Aroma is sweet malty caramel. Taste is dark malt, caramel and vanilla. Maybe some coffee? Lightly bitter finish. Heavy mouth feel with moderate carbonation. This is a wonderful beer. Complex and evolves as it warms. More beer please...

Fresh 2012 bottle. It was bottled just a few weeks ago. Smells a little boozy and bourbony, tastes smoother than smooth. A caramel, butterscotch vanilla mixture really makes it pop. For 10.5, its really smooth too. Cant wait to age a few bottles.

Bottle from Binnys (thanks Alex!). A good election night beer. Pours a deep copper-brown, almost no head to speak of (could be the glass though) Nose is whiskey, toffee and dried figs. Mouth is big and bad (good bad!).. creamy, toffee and raisins up front with booze lasting throughout. Finishes with a lingering bittersweetness. Ill be honest, I dont relaly like Scotch-style ales (especially after over-doing it a few years back with about 6-too-many Robert The Bruce), but this might make my top-5. Im a sucker for barrel-aged anything, and this one is no exception... George Jones could write a song about it.

Deep brownish red in color with a very thin whispy tan head, light spotting. Sweet nose, dark fruit, vanilla, dark malts, raisin, bourbon. Pretty boozy in flavor, sweet dark fruit, malty backbone with a big boozy finish, a little chocolate in there too. Silky feel and medium carbonation.
