650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Deep amber body. Medium off-white head. Lots of bourbon on the nose. Scotch ale comes through. Toffee. Butterscotch. Raisins. Wow, it's boozy. Strong bourbon. Booze. Toffee. Heavy oak. Dry finish. Heavy body. Boozy as hell. Tastes good, but I can't drink much of it.

Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, vanilla, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of woody bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a great barrel aged presence all around.

On tap for Beachwood Long Beach's Anniversary. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a dark crimson brown with reddish edges under a thin off-white head which fades quickly to the rim leaving trace spots.

N: Boozy, dark cherries, damp oak wood, sweetish bourbon, malty grains, fruity, vanilla, caramel, toffee. Crazy complex layers.

T: Sweet malty bourbon, oak, vanilla, slight char, lots of caramel, toffee. Wonderful balance.

M: Fully body and light carbonation. Sweetish bourbon and caramel finish.

O: Wonderfully complex and balanced. Warming. Should find a bottle.

Enjoying it in a tulip glass.

L: Dark brown, light head.
S: Malty, light barrel character.
T: This is where it shines, malty with a light barrel character. Vanilla, caramel, bready malt.
F: Nice amount of carbonation, just right. Not too sweet or heavy either.
O: Excellent beer, I would buy a case of this if I could.

Large shared bottle.
Wow, this is really great. A relatively heavy load of bourbon and bourbon barrel flavors but these are of exceptional quality and blend nicely with the other components.
Smooth medium body.
Alcohol is evident bit seems much lower than 12 due to the mildly warm feel and smoke bourbon flavor.
Highly recommended.

- 22oz. bomber poured into Lost Abbey Teku on 30-Jul-15
- 4oz. pour off tap @ Beachwood BBQ (Long Beach, CA) into pilsner glass on 1-Jul-15

This is the best barrel-aged scotch ale I've ever had to date. Better than Dirty Bastard and CC BA Big Sound. So smooth and the flavors meld really well. I've only had 8 Buffalo and RLaE, but this is definitely the best BA brew I've had from Beachwood.

Just released today! I know I should have waited, but what the hell...

A. Dark burnt caramel appearance with a light foamy head that settles nicely.
S: Malty, mulled fruits, spice and vanilla
T: Vanilla, bourbon, mulled fruits, dates, cinnamon...wow, the booze pairs well with this one!
M: Thick and delicious, creamy...a little hot.
O: I can't wait to age the other one! Thanks Beachwood, you rock!
