Poured from the bottle into my large snifter.

Appeared a dark brown, nearly black color with a half finger light brown head. Left some nice syrupy looking lacing on my glass.

Smells of vanilla, brown sugar, and a bit of dark fruits.

Taste is heavy on the vanilla (which I love). Also a bit buttery. The barrel aging on this is superb.

Mouthfeel was velvety and smooth. Alcohol was hidden pretty well.

Overall an awesome BA Scotch ale. I love what CW does in their barrels.
