Not retired by any means...Pours into an impy nonic a dull burnt orange infused russet brown with a thin light beige head atop.Bourbon and toast along with big fruitiness in the nose,a touch of lactic-like sourness is in there as well.Fruit and vanilla flavors with underlying toasty barrel,a bit of an abrupt finish leaves just under outstanding.A nice cold weather brew,it warms ya.

22 oz bottle split with my husband-Purchased at VE.

A- Body is a nearly transparent ruby red hue. Pours with a 1-2 finger soapy white head which eventually fades to a thin collar and leaves some lacing behind in the glass.

S- Lots of caramel,whiskey, molasses. Oak is very faint. The highlight of the nose is definitely a sticky sweetness.

T- Upfront is a lot of whiskey and caramel sweetness. There are hints of oak, vanilla, and spice in the background. The finish is pretty consistent with the initial flavor with added alcohol astringency. Left to linger is a mild alcohol astringency as well as sticky bourbon, caramel, and molasses sweetness.

M- Low to medium carbonation with moderate to heavy weight. Consistency is lightly sticky and lightly astringent.

O- Overall this is a good BA scottish ale. A bit more astringent and not quite the caliber of Wulver or Backwoods Bastard-but still very good. Its quite sweet and pretty boozy. I am surprised by the sweetness in this one.

22oz bomber poured into a snifter. Not bottled on date, red cap.

A- Pours a clear copper/ red color with a small amount of off-white head.

S- Sweet caramel malts dominate the smell for me, some alcohol is noted on the aroma also, but mostly hidden by the malts.

T- Starts off slightly sweet with the caramel malts coming through. After the initial sip I begin to notice the whiskey barrel aging, with slight oak and whiskey notes.

M- Medium bodied, medium carbonation, you notice the alcohol but not a very hot drinking beer.

This is a nice beer but I would have preferred more of the BA notes to shine through. The price point is a bit high too, as are most Hoppin Frog beers.
