A: Dark brown, like a soda. There was a quickly dying head, again like a soda. The carbonation even looked super prickly, again again like a soda. It pretty much literally looked like I was drinking a coke.
S: Now this is where I loved the beer. The nose was so open and had everything you'd expect from a BBA scotch ale. Bourbon, chocolate, carmel, good bit of fruit, and vanilla.
T: Nose transferred pretty well along with a bit of oak to it as well.
M: Super super thin and light. I was pretty bummed about this part. It has such potential if it were more robust. Carbonation was surprisingly mild for how lively it looked in the glass. Unless you took just a tiny sip and let it sit, you can feel the prickly carbonation on the rim of what's in your mouth.
O: I really enjoyed this beer and would have another. Just wish there was more body to it and it didn't look like a soda the whole time.

Thanks to Oneinchaway for sharing this at his tasting.
Best before 7/2013.
Pours a clear dark orange-brown with a foamy tan head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, toffee, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel, toffee, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of wood bitterness and alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid bourbon barrel aged presence all around.

let me preface this review by saying that this bottle is dated enjoy by july 2013 (oops). picked this one up when i was in NC exactly one year ago and must've forgotten that i had it (although how could i forget about a bourbon barrel aged scotch ale!!! - finding this one in the cellar during the re-org this week was like finding money in your jacket pocket...or so i hope). enjoyed from an olde hickory taster glass.
a - brew poured a deep brown with a off white greyish foamy head.
s - nose is to style. big booze soaked oak notes on a biscuity toasted grape malt backbone.
t - again fairly to style, if not a bit too sweet. nutty grape toasted malt with big vanilla like oak and some raw woody booziness, some chocolate on the body as well.
m - a bit fizzy. sweet.
o - overall a nice scotch ale aged in some wood. a bit hot, a bit sweet, and the peatiness isn't as rich and decadent as i would hope, but none the less an enjoyable brew.
