Copper colored pour with an off-white head. Nose is smokey and peaty with some chocolate, vanilla, and dark fruit. Sweet caramel and brown sugar, and certainly some alcohol. The flavor is smokey and boozy. Caramel, dark fruit, and brown sugar sweetness. Light vanilla and chocolate. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy and very dark amber color a small off-white head. Nose is extremely malty with an alcohol kick - almost like a barley wine. Taste is much the same - strong alcohol notes with a slight malty sweet undertone. Not what I expected, and not a huge fan. SSSteve (4006) - - MAR 17, 2013
bottle. murky deep copper beer with a small head. big caramel and oak nose. toasted bread, burnt caramel, a bit of smoke, charred oak barrel, toasted marshmallow flavors. syrupy, rich, full bodied palate. its a nice robust beer. OnWisconsin (140) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Nothing special. Poured a very mirky brown with a minamal head that dissipated quickly. Aroma had a few notes with bourbon, wet wood, ash and some malt. On the tongue you get sweet malt followed by some bourbon and finishing with a smoked dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium with a little too much carbonation. crossovert (14019) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2013
On tap as a vintage BA scotch ale. This fucking blows. Sweet as it can be, burnt rubber. flat, disgusting.

Strong aroma has a fruity and vaguely fishy overtone, with notes of malt and yeast. Pours a clear dark sepia with a nice wheat head. Flavor has firm fruity - pear with a little banana and apple - malty and cloves notes, and, hello, quite an alcohol bite. Well it is 10% ABV. Texture has decent fizz and thickness - and a serious alcohol edge. Overall, edgy and lively, decent flavor. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2013
22oz bottle. Clear, copper color, light tan fizz. Aroma of old malt, vanilla, definitely oak in the nose. Butter toffee flavor, sweet malt. Tastes old, oxidation flavors. Pretty strong. (3599) jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2013
From notes. Bottle to shaker. Loads of chocolate, caramel, old oak and some vanilla. I’ll drink this one again. madvike (3303) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle shared by rschnake...thanks Rob! - Pours clear amber with a ring of white head. Nose is lightly smoky malt, with a big breay maltiness, and a little yeast.Taste is the same, with a bit more smokiness and a bit of a rubber taste to it. Thin body with ample carbonation. Interesting. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Brown pour, light brown head. Aroma is all barrel, vanilla, bourbon, oak, light peat and something a bit tart. Flavor again is all barrel. Maybe too much contact time? A hint of something tart/vegetal in the finish. I didnt enjoy this.
