Originally had the 2012 version at a bar from a bottle. It was good but I didn't see what all the fuss was about. I'm also not a fan of Dirty Bastard.
The hype returned so I tried a single of the 2013 version
Appearance: Pours a dark brown color and it looks like there will be no head but the carbonation slowly creeps up (similar to a nitro beer) and forms a dark brown head. Looks real nice.
Smell: Really awesome nose. Vanilla, toffee, butterscotch, dak fruits, bourbon. Very sweet.
Taste - Taste mirrors the nose with more bourbon. Really great vanilla aftertaste. Just a tiny bit of booze/bourbon burn on the aftertaste but it's barely there.
Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel.
Overall: Way better than I remember. Love this beer. The thing I love about this beer is that the bourbon is blended well and isn't boozy or overpowering the other flavors. They just mix together perfectly. Amazing beer and my favorite scotch ale now. Had to go back and get a 4 pack.
Serving type: bottle
