Enjoyed several helpings of this at FOBAB. Served in my FOBAB taster glass.

A: Pours a dark brown color with a tan head forming on the pour. Nice retention and it recedes slowly down the glass.

S: Pappy up front, sweet for sure, with a nice barrel presence. Some oak, vanilla and caramel. There is a nice wee heavy base there with a little peat and roasted malts.

M: The taste jumps up to another level entirely. The Pappy is up first. Incredibly smooth with the barrel and base beer mixing wonderfully after that. Smokey with a nice roasted malt presence. The barrel weaves in and out with some vanilla and toffee that lend a hand to the semi-sweet and peaty finish.

M: Medium low carbonation with a medium-heavy mouthful. Full of flavor it rolls over the palate with a smooth and creamy finish.

O: Wow. This beer blew me away and might have been the best thing I had at FOBAB. The base beer still shines through and the Pappy barrel gives this beer another complex layer of flavor. I really want to try this again.

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
