There was a lot of novelty in this can of beer. Its a blend of Oskar Blues Gubna Imperial IPA and Old Chub Scotch Ale, aged in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels, and it was the first beer Ive had in Oskar Blues new Stovepipe cans. It pours dark copper/orange color with average head. The aroma and the flavor both remind me very much of the barrel aged version of Arrogant Bastard, and from me that is a real compliment. Its smokey, slightly sweet, with some strong scotch and molasses qualities, but there is serious hops fireworks going on here, too. The finish is a malt bomb in the best way, and the bourbon barrel comes through from top to bottom. Very good beer.

Imperial pint can. Boozy aroma with bourbon, vanilla, caramel, oak, smoke and slight amount of hops. Pours dark ruby red with a thin tan head that has poor retention and lacing. Starts with caramel, bourbon and vanilla flavors with a rich mouthfeel and boozy mouthfeel. Finishes dry and boozy with oak, smoke and bit of hops at the very end. Not much IPA to this, but who cares, its a wonderful beer.

Mad_Ferret (1014) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2016
Draught at Akkurat. Clear deep amber/mahogany, short off white head. Big load of sticky caramel and heavy bourbon on the nose. Some peppery spice and vanilla, dill crisps. Taste is sweet with caramel, vanilla, fudge and some dried fruit, but also salty bourbon and dill crisps, fairly dry finish. Big body, soft scrubbing carbonation, oily. Just big and chunky in my opinion. Salty with an overload of bourbon.

onceblind (9184) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Clear deep Amber with a fast fading ivory head. Lovely nose of bourbon barrel boozy sweetness, vanilla, coconut, dark scotch ale malts, light cocoa, toffee, peanut brittle, and a leafy earthy hop bitterness. Smooth and large flavor thats woody, boozy/bourbonny, dark malty sweet, a lot of apricot, a little leafy, lots of peaty sweet scotch ale malt, and a slightly resiny hop and oak woody finish that lingers with bourbon and vanillin. Weird, but complex and tasty.
