Ryan hooks me up big here. He must appreciate all of those vintage Zombie Dust I've sent him. Poured into a HF stemmed tulip at cellar temp.
A - Dark brown with some red hues. Thick, slightly off-white head.
S - Sweetness, slightest amount of caramel with some nice vanilla coming through. There is what I'd describe as a coconut coming through a tad bit as well somewhere in the middle.
T - Surprisingly complex. Sweet malts quickly move to some fruitiness, which shows some underlying woodiness. The finish is strong on the fruit. The slightest amounts of caramel and vanilla come through, but they aren't dominant at all. The finish is a nice blend of sweet and dry. At first I found something similar to a pineapple to be the fruity finish. I'm uncertain after about 5 ounces. Some black cherry-like flavors come in the middle. Almost like it has a hint of apple somewhere.
M - Medium body. Suitable for the beer.
O - Great all around. I'll happily take another one of these. No, it isn't really like a Scotch Ale as far as my experience goes. However, I do like it a lot. Very unique.

Poured into tulip.
A Crystal brown. Transparent. Thick brown head. Thick lacing remains down.
S Whow! Potent. Cherry. Grape.. Alcohol. Brown sugar. Malts. Caramel. Highlight of this beer.
T Interesting. There's a schism: get a big boozy alcohol and oak hit, but equaling strong is the the tangy fruit (cherry, grape, even a little kiwi) along with some chocolate and black pepper.
M Bready. Full. Has a boozy aftertaste. This lingers.
O This is a complex brew. Fruity, sweet, caremelly, chocolaty. However, the other side really turned me off. Way too boozy. The oak barreling didn't kill it, but it didn't make it either. Just too much booze.

Lion stout tulip, out of the 2012 vintage 750ml.
A- Clean deep hued brownish burgundy. Great 2 finger off white head, which retains well on the surface of the glass with nice lacing down the sides.
S- Woody, whiskey soaked dark dried fruits, chocolate caramel cake. warming.
T- A bit tart almost like sour cherry, no noticeable smokey flavor, most of the malt has faded into this tart flavor. Hints of whiskey in the end. This might go sour. I am going to hold on to my others and see what happens.
M- A bit harsh, almost prickles the tongue. then the carbonation fades and the tartness draws up salivation. Not very smooth at all.
O- Intriguing to say the least. Im not sure if this will get better or worse with time. I liked it more fresh, without the tartness. Not bad but not the best town hall barrel aged beer.
