UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2012
Pours red amber hue with a off white head. Nose and taste of bourbon, toffee, vanilla, caramel, and oak. The level of bourbon is perfect, enough to know its there... And not overpowering the rest of the beer. Body is big and silky. A great sipping beer.

Bottle into tulip. Dark hazy mahogany w tan head that does not hang around. Heady aroma of vanilla, Creme brûlée and alcohol. Similar taste w hints of bourbon and oaked creaminess. A touch of sweetness but not cloying. A tasty after dinner sipper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Klar, mörkt röd med lite brunt, tätt ljus brunt orange skum. Doft: Sprit, malt, trä, lite madeira, vanilj, whiskykola, gräddkola, jäst frukt. Smak: Som doft. Undviker man att stoppa näsan alltför långt ner i glaset undviker man alkohol doften. I smaken är den med men tar inte över, med 11% är det svårt att undvika det. Lagom med en flaska till två personer.

ironcontra (450) - ATL, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2017
Very barrel-aged type flavor, a lot of wood and vanilla, a pretty heavy ale that'd be best in a small qty, creamy, alco presence not over the top for the abv

2017 edition, poured from 12 oz bottle. Pours mahogany with thick, dense head that lingers. Amoma is scotch, bourbon and caramel, in that order. Taste is rich caramel and roast which gives way to sweet bourbon. Finish is very warm bourbon. A wonderful scotch ale that is worth waiting for every year.

Pours a dark amber, with a nice cream head. Aroma of wood and whiskey. Taste is rich and malty, with good presence of oak and bourbon. This is a really nice scotch type ale, aged in oak bourbon barrels. Thumbs way up.

Bitek (797) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 10, 2017
Wanilia, karmel, toffi, drewno, rodzynki, szlachetny alkohol. Średnie ciało, półsłodkie. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, średnia goryczka - ciut alkoholowa. Dość mocno taniczne, ściągające, drewniane. Bez wątpienia duża klasa.

mjoneill75 (6) - - NOV 3, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Bourbon on the nose. Taste follows the nose with bourbon, oak, followed by vanilla and slight bitterness. Silky smooth the quintessential bourbon barrel scotch ale.

Lots of wood, vanilla and caramel in aroma followed up by wet wood, leather, caramel and toffee on the tongue. Intense, complex beer, that Ive really enjoyed.

From Jan 2008 I got this bottle as an extra in a trade with hoppymeal. Thanks Derek! This pours from 12oz bottle a clear deep amber with a 2 finger head of off white foam. Lots of lacing and the foam just doesn't want to quit. Nice. The smell isn't strong but I get good notes of carame and roasted malt. The taste is a malty delight! Big caramel malt up front with notes of bourbon(done very nicely), chocolate, fig, and when I swish the beer in my mouth, I notice that it's very (dark) fruity. Delicious. The alcohol is hidden pretty well with just some warming after the swallow. It borders on sweet but there's some burnt flavour there that adds just enough bitterness to balance the flavours. Very nice and it has a medium mouthfeel and it finishes with a slightly woody flavour. This is some good stuff! Thanks again, Derek!!
