A: Dark, ruby red with tons of carbonation flowing up the side of the glass. Very little head fades to a nice spider-web like lacing.

S: Bourbon, dark fruit, cherries, toffee, warm booze and a slight hint of chocolate

T: Taste is very similar to the aroma, but very well balanced. The smell is dominated by bourbon and dark fruit, but all the different flavors blend together perfectly. Also virtually no alcohol presence on the palate, besides the delicious bourbon. Some vanilla and molasses on the back end, which is right up my alley.

M: Very smooth and silky. Easy drinking for big ABV, BA beer.

O: A very good representation of BA Scotch Ale. Honestly prefer this one over Backwoods Bastard, which is one of my favorite beers.

The beer pours a fairly dark brown color with light lacing and minimal retention,. This beer has the look of a beer that has seen considerable barrel aging. The nose is pretty glorious, as I pick up considerable bourbon, butterscotch, light toffee and a hint of brown sugar and chocolate. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely in this sweet, rich beer. Mouthfeel is interesting. There's a lightness to this beer on the palate that is surprising, given the abv. The beer delivers plenty of flavor otherwise, and the alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor profile. I noticed the beer's strength mid way through the glass, but you really don't pick up any heat or booziness on the palate.

Delicious beer. One of the best things I can recall having from Thirsty Dog.

This is one amazing brew. If it weren't for BA, I wouldn't have bought this. If I can't get BCBW, I'm going for this!
