A - Dark brown with reddish tints to it. Light off white head that sits on the sides

S - Vanilla, light brown malt, and lots of pappy butterscotch to it. Really a nice nose

T - Bourbon sweetness and vanilla up front. There is a nice brown malt presence that comes through next. Hint of butterscotch as well as slight alcohol and oak in the finish. Really a nice beer with good pappy presence

M - Medium body with light vanilla syrupiness to it that goes well with the sweetness

O - Really solid beer with good pappy presence to it that lends lots of vanilla and butterscotch to an otherwise decent scotch ale
