Vintage 2012 bottle.

A - Pours a dark, ruby brown color with a one fingered head and dies down to a thick toffee colored lacing ring.

S - Light aroma: toasted toffee, caramel, bourbon, and some vanilla. I really have to dig into my snifter to get anything in the nose.

T - Toasted toffee, light vanilla, and bourbon.

M - Medium body and lots of initial carbonation which creates an airy sensation on the tongue, slightly sticky.

O - Decent. Next time I'd rather try a fresh bottle, perhaps it mellowed too much over the past year?

A-Clear amber, one finger head off white head that tries to leave some lacing.

S-Nice bourbon, vanilla notes, some peat, dirt, caramel and molasses.

T-Rather malty, caramel, vanilla, moderate bourbon, good balance, grass, dirt and caramel.

M-Medium bodied, nicely carbonated.

O-A nice barrel aged scotch ale. Not as good as Backwoods Bastard but good none the less.

12oz, no date information
Riedel tulip

A: Slightly hazed dark amber color. Layer of light off white head. Forms a collar. Seems to be carbonated.

S: Burnt sugar. Caramel. Toffee. Slight butterscotch maybe? Not getting straight up bourbon and vanilla. Slight infection? I don't know what is a little off here.

T: You get that butterscotch first and foremost. Really takes away from the scotch ale character. Drain poured half the bottle. Dry finish with Werthers Original close.

M: Full bodied. Big mouthfeel.

Had this on 2013-05-05 in Munster, IN at Three Floyd's

A - pretty clear copper-brown with 1-finger tan head and very good lace.

S - Scottish malt. Not too peaty. Mild roasted bitterness. Light bourbon. Balanced. Inviting.

T - Delicious. Rich. Chocolate. Vanilla. Earthy spice. Light bourbon.

M - thick body. Light carb. Milkshake thick.

O - Lip smackin' good. First beer from this brewery. Impressive.
