Bottle 2012 vintage
A: Pours a dark, amber, toffee color with translucency topped off by a half finger off-white colored head. Leaves nice lacing down the glass as I drink.
S: This is where this beer shines. Very pronounced oaky, vanilla bourbon aroma. There is a very subtle smokiness there from the scotch but this is almost all bourbon. I almost don't want to drink this beer because I don't know if it can live up to this aroma.
T: The taste does not live up to the aroma's hype. Malty-syrupy sweetness at the beginning of the sip with an astringent bitter finish.
M: Moderate carbonation with a dry finish. The alcohol swirls up nicely into the nasal passages and then warms comfortably in my stomach.
O: This is a great beer. I could just sit an enjoy the aroma alone but drinking it is so much fun.
