COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Rich caramel and super smooth bourbon and oak aromas and flavors. Definitely an enjoyable supper by the fire on the chillier nights. Founders best beer beside their breakfast stout.

Warm, complex and a phenomenal variety of malts, sweetness, smoke, and wood, without any of those notes overwhelming. I only had a taster but even from that small sample this was a brew meant to be sipped and savored. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home. Pours really dark amber with a tiny beige head. Aroma is strong dried fruits, caramel, whiskey and cherries in a quite nice balance. Taste is really smooth smoky oak, dried fruits, malt whiskey and caramel. Really nice and warming beer.

caesar (6854) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2017
Bottle from Hopt.nl, 11.1% ABV BB 04/06/17, 35 cl sample. Clear dark copper color, medium frothy head. Aroma of lots of cookie and vanilla from bourbon whisky, some caramel and toffee maltiness and slight dark red fruit to finish it off. Full bodied. Quite some sweetness, mixing in toffee, vanilla and butterscotch cookie. Smooth, soft carbonation, wonderful complexity. Barrel aging done to perfection.

Draft. Pours dark with a reddish tent. The palate is juicy and wet. Not what I was expecting. The taste is big bourbon. Malty sweetness of the scotch ale. Decent beer
