great woody aroma with hints of a vanilla like alcohol. very deep caramel brown with a head that vacates the glass quickly. very sweet malty taste and the perfect amount of woody flavor. the finish is phenomenal, with a sweet vanilla/oak taste lingering around. excellent beer JoeMcPhee (10187) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2010
Deep brown pour. The nose is sweet and chewy with a bit of light cocoa and toffee underneath soft toasted caramel. Fairly rich and chewy with a touch of light cherry character. A bit of light leather and dried fruit. There is a bit of fruity hoppiness and some lingering resiny bitterness. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Ah, vanilla, oak, delicately toasted marshmallow with care and precision. Tawny amber, small white ring of a head. Nice strong assertive peat, mellow thistle nectar, dry young oak and a creamy milky caramel finish. mcberko (20267) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2010
Sampled at 99 Bottles just outside Seattle, pours dark amber. Aroma and flavour are a perfect smoky balance of malts and caramel, with a bit of wood and oak. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Bottled. Brutish, woody, soy sauce aroma. Salty and sweet. Bright and caramelly flavor, with tamari sauce, fish sauce. Very odd. Not much of a whiskey note.

Malty slight woody, dark amber in color with a big malty flavor. Slight roasty and a weak wood flavor. Smooth and dry this was a weak and I was hoping for a bigger bite from the wood and spices. Peat was also light I was hoping for more.
Tap at the brewery. Poured a dark brown with a moderate, thick beige head. Aroma is sweet, a little butterscotchy, with dried cherry notes. Flavor has those elements as well, and starts out not too different from the regular version of Fat Scotch ale: caramelly, raisin, dried cherry, smokey peat, but these characteristics are more subdued next to the dry woody finish. Nicely balanced and a little easier to drink continually than the standard Fat Scotch ale. j12601 (13472) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle at Paul’s tasting. Pours a dark cola brown with a thin white head. Caramel and chocolate, dark plums and stone fruit. Medium bodied, nice light carbonation. Chocolate and caramel. Smooth. Finishes up with some light caramel and chocolate booze notes. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bomber- Pours a clear deeo woody copper with a thinning head. Aroma is very sweet- somewhat 1-dimensional- just lots of sugary and sweet malts, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, maple, with hints of phenols, earth and light oak. Flavor is sugary sweet as well- toasted malts, brown sugar, molasses, cane sugary sweetness, raisin puree, thinning with some alcohol and light vanilla toast oak- finishes a bit thin with some heat.
