This beer is a very dark brown, not massively thick but too dark to show through, with a small tan head that holds up reasonably well and drops mostly spotting on the glass below a ring at top.
This beer has massive depth, character and complexity all over the place, masterfully blended without losing anything. All over this beer is lots of wood, even some soft bark in there, plenty of smoked caramel and vanilla. Creamy dark chocolate and milk chocolate mingle in there as well, a bit of cocoa powder dryness evening the sweetness out. Alcohol adds a warmth and a little kick without going too astringent with overbearing ethanol punch. Brown sugar sweetness comes in and mingles with the lightly smoky notes. This beer seems to move in phases and develop layers, almost dancing on the tongue.
Dryness and sweetness mingle for an overall semi-dry effect on the palate, mixing creamy with powdery without clashing. It's full-bodied without exactly being thick, and it has lots of richness, keeping both crisp and smooth from start to finish.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Murky deep brown. Thin collar. Pond watery. No real head.

Smell - Great bourbon barrel character. Lots of oak and vanilla. Caramel malt. Brown sugar. Nice.

Taste - Doesn't really live up to the smell, but it's good. Rich caramel. Bourbon. Oak. Some buttery flavors. Brown sugar. Slightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Heavy. Medium low carbonation. Boozy.

Overall - Very tasty, even if it doesn't live up to the smell.

On tap at Perch Pub, Philly, PA.

Had this side by side with K13 and AB Grand Negro. It was definitely better than K13, and pretty close to tying with AB GN.

Deep dark brown color, with a few stray bubbles forming a collar at the top of the liquid, but otherwise no head or lacing to speak of. Not unusual. In the nose, rich dark sugars, oak and vanilla, semi-sweet chocolate. Taste was heavy and sweet, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, chocolate, bourbon-soaked oak, notes of vanilla and butterscotch. Wet wood in the finish with a slight herbal presence (peat? hop?). Full body, smooth, creamy mouthfeel, lower carbonation, some alcohol heat.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of a better beer than this for the style. Er...scratch that, BB Big Sound was better IMO...but regardless, this was a great brew, and I'm definitely not a big fan of Scotch ales.
