A - dark brown, cloudy

S - smells of sweet roasted malts

T - first i get a sweetness from the malts, then i get the bourbon flavor. the bourbon is not too overpowering, yet is powerful enough to overtake the initial sweet flavors

M - medium body, medium carbonation

O - If you like bourbon-barrel-aged beers, you will LOVE this beer. The Scotch Ale style is the perfect style to age in bourbon barrels. The bourbon flavors mesh very well with the sweet roasted malts of the scotch ale style. Everyone should try this beer. I am looking forward to trying more of Tyranena's Brewers Gone Wild series.

Deep tawny mahogany. Capped mediumly with a dark beige crown of tight creamy based foam that slips off semi quickly. Some spotty lacing is flecked about.

Aroma is maple syrup over fresh hotcakes with a bit of vanilla and a bit of deep and dark oakyness. Warming attributes emerge within the mapleyness as it sits. Nice!

Solid malt base taster that pulls in deep, dark, sweet sided maple tones with hints to vanilla, butter cream, caramelized sugars, and a wonderfully warming roundedness that oozes smooth, creamy, silken maltyness soaking across the palate with a delicate oak twist in the trunk. Delish!

Smooth, heavenly thick and creamy with a malty thick gooeyness that covers the palate quickly with its heavier medium body and girth. Soaks right in and fills the palate with a yummy rich tone of mapley maltyness with a nice touch of warmth in the middle.

Yum, yum, yummy! One awesome Wee Heavy on display here. Tyranena makes another top notch drinker with great flavor, tone, and body. I can and will drink alot of this stuff! YUM!

I really think Tyranena does a kick-ass job with their barrel aged beers and this is another one. I like a strong barrel impression and this has it. A lot of vanilla, nougat and oak...blended with a nice sticky sweet scotch ale....not much of a peated malt smokiness...if it has some it is muted by the barrel aged impressions...Body feels full....like I said a little sticky sweet....excellent aroma and excellent taste. Great beer.

This fine ale pours a reddish-brown color with very little head and sticky lacing. The nose brings scents of roasted and sweet malt with an rich caramel tone. This beer is absolutely delishous! Sweet caramel with burnt sugars and molasses. Vanilla and bourbon are present as well. Big time malt presence that knocks my socks off with each sip. Awesome. The creamy mouthfeel is great and fulfilling. I could swirl this one around in my mouth all day! There isnt a listed ABV but I am assuming this is a strong one based on the title alone but there is 0 booze burn. Amazing

Poured into a Le Cheval Blanc pint glass. Pours a clear reddish amber with a scant head, leaves a mere wisp of foam.

Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, oak, deep rich caramel malts. No hops to speak of.

Flavors of rich sweet, caramel maltiness, hints of bourbon, oak and vanilla. Vanilla dominates in the finish. No hop flavor to speak of.

Mouthfeel is big, chewy and malty. Sweet but not cloying.

Overall a very nice beer. Good balance, nothing too extreme. Just enough bourbon flavor to let you know it's there, but not being hot.
