A- Pours dark brown with a thin tan head, leaving slight lacing

S- Bourbon jumps out followed by peaty malts, vanilla, caramel

T- Bourbon up front. Dark fruits, caramel and peaty malts are present in the middle of the taste. Long lasting bourbon/malt finish

M- A wee bit thin but low carbonation leads to a smooth mouthfeel

O- Another great brew from Central Waters barrel program. This is a very good BA scotch ale that with a little more body would be terrific. I will gladly pick up a case this year and seek it out again next year.

2013 bottle as a trade extra. Pours murky brown amber color with a small off white head that recedes quickly. Beautiful bourbon aroma with plenty of vanilla, oak, toffee, caramel, brown sugar. Flavor is lots of brown sugar, raisins, vanilla and marshmallow finish, bourbon, toffee, oak, a tad of metallic oxidization. Big body, some booziness, medium plus carbonation, smooth long finish. Nice brew and deserved love in the style.
