This is one good looking Bastard. Pours out a deep ruby with a thick one finger light brown head that is slow to recede lacing the glass.
Barrel forward nose of coconut, vanilla, and wood with underlying scotch ale coming through with dark fruits and caramel.
The barrel is coming through with a little bit of bourbon flavor, vanilla, and coconut. It brings caramel and toffee sweetness and it sticky on the lips. Fruity flavors of cherry, figs, and dates. Slight heat in the throat.
Drinks smoothly with a medium body. Its got a soft carbonation.

Poured from 12oz bottle into Crooked Stave tulip. Pours a deep brown amber with a thin slightly of white head. Awesome sweet malt and big booze aroma. Some cooked caramel/melted sugar notes.
Flavor is fantastic. Sweet caramel malts, lots of chocolate, booze, scotch, and hints of vanilla and charred barrel. Really smooth...I mean such an easy drinker. What an awesome and amazing example of the style. Worth the wait for it every year. Everyone should have this beer.
