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.

Bottle. Red, thick, syrupy, sweet aroma of caramel and malt. Light bourbon in the taste that lingers in the finish. A definite sipper that is very fit for purpose.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2012 Bottle from beergod1 trade. Intense aromas of single-malt scotch, caramel, dark fruit, and light spice. Flavor is savory, thick malt with an alcohol presence with essence of fine scotch. Little head, but perfect, limited carbonation to enhance flavors. I loved this! Excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle care of TimE. Colour is dark brown, reddish edges and thin off white head. Nose is big bold bourbon barrel, malty and lots of caramel. I have to declare now that I am not a fan of barrel aged stuff. However, this seems to work. First up its a big mouthful of bourbon, bag loads of vanilla and everything else is drowning, but as it lingers the flavours of the beer underneath it all start to come through and theres some nice orange marmalade, fruity and sweet caramel. So not bad after all and great on a cold night.

one of my favorite Michigan brews. Taste like how it sounds. Rivaled only by Scotty Karate.

Dark brown with a red touch, the head is light brown. This is a big beer, tonnes of aroma and flavor. The first you notice is the barrel notes of vanillia wood and bourbon. But there is also a sweet caramel base with figs ans prunes. Im usually not that fond of beers that are this sweet with a lot of barrel notes, but this is a lovely beer that is well balanced.

Wow - just wow. One of the best use of booze barrels in beer Ive come across.(and thanks to mi amigo Jaime for sending it my way). Lotsa complex layers going together perfectly and all that jazz. Wish I could get this all the time out here.

Such a fantastic sipper. Not too sure why it comes out in November, as it would be good to sip by a midnight bonfire for sure. Take the Dirty Bastard and add a little vanilla and bourbon notes, some warm & fuzzy and this is what you get. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big time barrel ager here. Clear brown in a with a small head. Nose is sherry like aged notes and vanilla. Sweet and a touch sticky which works for a big slow sipper like this. The barrel character is really dominant here but its well put together overall. Honestly, this stuff is tasty but Id rather have something a bit more beery.

Bottle - pours deep red (almost black) with a tan head. Has a smooth chocolate flavor to it with a definite bourbon presence. A good on to sip.

Bourbon you say!! Bourbon on the nose, big blast in the first few sips and then it becomes a beer of beauty! Im certainly not going to pound these, but once in a short while, this is certainly a brew to turn to!
