Got a Backwoods Bastard from a friend, so I figured I’d give it a try tonight. Beer was chilled to ~45deg and poured into a snifter.
A – Beautiful mahogany color, with a nice toffee colored 2 finger head. Great head retention, stuck around for pretty much the entire drink.
S – I could smell a nice light burnt oak, with a warm alcohol aroma.
T – The first thing I tasted was malty sweetness. It was followed by light bourbon undertones. And finally a nice light oak with mild hop bitterness.
M – A really nice smooth beer that blended the alcohol well with the sweetness from the malt and hop bitterness. The carbonation was perfect. When I finished the beer there was a ton of lacing left in the glass.
O – Overall I really enjoyed this beer. I thought the flavors all complimented each other well. I would recommend this beer to anyone who likes bourbon barrel aged beers.

A: Pours a muddy brown color with just a hint of red to it. Thin sandy colored head simmers down quickly, leaving just a thin layer above the beer.
S: The bourbon definitely jumps out at you right away. Toasted coconut, vanilla, burnt caramel, brown sugar, spicy oak and just a bit of marshmallow. Smells pretty great.
T: Tons of rich maltiness right off the bat with a lot of caramel, oak, molasses, vanilla and bourbon. The finish brings some heavy oak and some light cinnamon and charred wood. Mouthfeel is slick and gives the sweeter caramel flavors a bit of a buttery feel. This is pretty good stuff. Way up there on my list of scotch ales.
