Picked up a 4pk at Jungle Jim's, $24 for a 4 pk, yikes. A scotch ale aged 11 months in bourbon barrels.

Pours a dark brown that settles into a dark coffee. A half inch beige head fades to a ring.

Smells classic to style, with an added layer of butterscotch sweetness from the bourbon.

Taste is really nice with more butterscotch, raisins, bourbon and oak.

Nice carbonation with no burn but you can tell it's higher in the ABV category.

Solid beer from Thirsty Dog, which before this had always been a 'meh' brewery for me. Glad to have a few more.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

poured 12oz bottle into snifter.

A - Dark cola brown with a thin half finger eggshell head. Some swaths of lacing.

S - Plenty of bourbon, vanilla, and wood up front. Nice blend of caramel, butterscotch, and other sweet notes.

T - Bourbon and wood, with hints of vanilla. There is a presence of caramel and butterscotch. Nice scotch ale with big barrel notes.

M - Medium bodied with little carbonation, to be expected after aging for 11 months in a bottle.

O - Very nice scotch ale, and it is similar to Central Waters BBSA. The difference is that CW is $10 less a 4 pack. BWB remains my favorite BBSA.

Poured into a 16 oz snifter, not sure of the bottle date. Pours a gorgeous dark amber with, a quarter inch off white head, that leaves behind some attractive lace. Smell is all about the toffee, caramel, vanilla, and brown sugar bourbon dipped raisins. Taste is really the same, but vanilla and toffee dominate, with the other flavors in a supporting role. Body is medium, with enough life, a touch dry, and a sipper for sure. This is a fairly smooth monster of a beer, that really deserves its recognition and tickles the palate in the best way. Reviewed on barrel aged beer day and a delicious treat.
