12 ounce bottle into snifter
Pours a thick dark brown with a tiny light tan head. Smell is vanilla, bourbon, and oak with some butterscotch and molasses. Bourbon and vanilla dominate the taste with hints of the butterscotch and molasses. Heavier bodied with a lower amount of carbonation. Overall a great scotch ale. Had this side by side with Founder's Backwoods Bastard and prefer this, heavier body and stronger vanilla notes with less booziness.

No head but bits of lacing on a clear copper with amber hues body. Aroma of oak, wet towels, bourbon, caramel, red wine and molasses. Flavor follows with an excellent complex mixture including notes of vanilla, caramel, bourbon and oak with a nice balance between sweetness and boozy bourbon although not at all overwhelming boozy. The base beer is still well represented it seems. Light carbonation and medium to full, oily body. Very nice beer. Easy to drink for the style. Would love to come across this one again.

A word to those who read reviews before pouring: Pour heavily. I only started pouring aggressively halfway through, and still got less than half a finger of head. This rapidly disappeared, leaving me with a rich ruby-brown body. Lace is absolutely missing.
This beer smells like bourbon. Beneath the bourbon, I get notes of vanilla and wood. I think I'm also getting caramel and malt, but I can't clearly smell it through the bourbon.
Vanilla starts at the beginning. This goes into a maltiness, which breaks through into a woodiness. Molasses comes in with the bourbon, with the vanilla just growing to a crescendo with a strong combined finish with the molasses. As jarring as the bourbon aroma is, that is how smooth the flavor is.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied. It is surprisingly very smooth the whole way through. It leaves just the faintest residue at the back of the throat. Carbonation is just right- subdued.

Bottle pour at Woodshop 8 held at The Hermosillo in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a clear brown with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with toffee and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a barrel aged presence that is slightly better in the aroma in my opinion.
