4.65/5 rDev +7.4%
2012 bottle via IP trade. Poured into Snifter.
A: Pours a nice coke like ruby brown color. Thin one finger head that fades quickly.
S: Oak is very pronounced, vanilla, and red creme soda like aroma. Some slight hint of dark cherries on the nose as well.
T: Big bourbon up front, followed by creamy vanilla sweetness. Some brown sugar in there as well. Wow, just a fantastic tasting beer.
M: Rich full bodied with a very slight alcohol warming. Sweet sticky bourbon coats the mouth.
O: What a fantastic brew. I dont think I've had a BA scotch ale before but I shall be seeking out others.

Bottled 10/2012, served in a weizen glass thanks to boilerfood for this one.
Deep mahagony with some light penetrating and a 1.5 finger soapy khaki head with moderate retention and moderate lacing.
Heavenly aroma, one of my favorites, great caramel and molasses notes flood the nostrils. Tastes sweet caramel at the tip of the palate and complex malts evolve on the middle while drier oaky, tannic woody flavors finish the experience.
A fantastic beer, maybe the best scotch ale I have had so far. This is number 97/100 of my quest to complete the BA hall of fame. Three more to go!
