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.

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.
