Pours dark for a scotch ale - great creamy beige head. Fantastically rich aroma of toffee, caramel, bourbon, oak, oaky vanilla and sweet brown sugar and some very light sweet smoke. A lot of chocolate as it warms Very rich whiskey and caramel. Tastes very smooth - rich barrel, whiskey, and scotch ale flavors. Finishes with booze, toffee, caramel, and chocolate. Crazy, but brings positive dark lord qualities to mind.

CCB kills another BA beer. They are at the top of the game, and this is outstanding.
