Pours a brownish copper with less than a finger of tan head that enjoyed some decent retention. The nose has soft but distinct bourbon notes. The malt profile is weak for the style and the body is also too thin to properly balance with the bourbon flavors. The bourbon almost completely takes over on the finish and this offering ends up tasting like a shot rather than a beer.

Big thanks to Mportnoy for this extra!

A- Settles into the glass with a very dark brown body and a foamy cream-colored head. Some carbonation bubbles can be seen around the edges of the glass, rising from the body.

S- The nose is fantastic. Oak, coconut, caramel malts, hints of toast, slight hints of vanilla and burnt sugar.

T- Not as sweet as I would have thought. Lots of smooth caramel malt with influences from the bourbon barrel. Some toasted oak, hints of vanilla, a little bit of sugary sweetness towards the end.

M- Very smooth, incredibly easy to drink for the abv. Carbonation is medium, with a full-bodied mouthfeel.

O- A very nice barrel-aged scotch ale. The barrel works really well to add some sweetness and complex flavors to the big maltiness.
