12 oz. bottle, no apparent bottled on date, but my beer store just got this in fresh. An exciting new beer to try from Tyranena. I haven't tried the original Tyranena Sheep Shagger Scotch Ale that this beer was derived from, but I am looking forward to it now to distinguish the differences between the two. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Aggressive pour yields about three fingers of creamy off-white / tan colored head on top of a dark burnt orange / reddish / chestnut colored body. Almost a glowing orangey color reminiscent of a fine whiskey when held under the light. Some thin wispy strands of lace.
S - Smell is nutty, earthy wood, vanilla, charred bourbon barrel characteristics. Bit of toasty malt / smoke kind of scent.
T - Full-bodied, smooth, and cloudy. Creamy, silky vanilla with a hint of milk chocolate type presence. Some smoked wood, earth, and bourbon barrel characteristics are in there also. Some alcohol warmth presents itself, although this beer's abv doesn't seem to be listed anywhere, although I am guessing it is near the 7.70% abv of it's parent beer, the Tyranena Sheep Shagger Scotch Ale. The beer definitely has a peanut / walnut type flavor going on as well. Very interesting.
M - Feel is sleek, bitter, and creamy, with a bit of coffee bean / vanilla presence lingering in the background.
Overall, a tasty, complex, and interesting endeavor from Tyranena Brewing Co. Bourbon barrel aged beers are definitely my thing, and this one is no exception. Somewhat reminiscent of the Tyranena Rocky's Revenge Bourbon Brown, but with a few more subtle complexities. Glad I picked up this four pack, although it is probably a beer that I will not again after I finish with these four bottles.
