12 FLUID OUNCE bottle
Served in a snifter

A - It is tea colored with chunks of yeast settling to the bottom of my glass. It is topped briefly by an inch of tan head. There is no lacing.

S - There is a big caramel and toffee smell.

T - The taste is loaded with caramel as well. The oak taste is modest. The melding of caramel, toffee, and vanilla make for a decadent combination. I get some bourbon in the aftertaste.

M - Medium and velvety smooth.

O - The more barrel aged Scotch ales I have the more I like them. I don't think I have had a bad one yet. This beer is fantastic. I wish I had about 23 more of them instead of a single bottle. I love it and would highly recommend.

Pour is clear burnt brown with red hues and a light yellowish head. Nose is strong charred wood and fairly deep malt aromas. Chocolate, bourbon, burnt caramel and brown sugar. Taste is the same, chocolate, woody, cooked caramel and brown sugar, notes of peat and bourbon through the finish. Body is soft and airy, not too thick with good carbonation but thins out in finish and a little watery. Not a bad beer.

12oz bottle from a trade, into a Deschutes snifter and split with my brother.

A: Clear gold with minimal head.

S: Earthy wet wood and soil, definite peat characteristics...damp campfire, caramel, peanut butter, roasted barley...honey, bourbon, vanilla...sweeter malt, toffee, bready.

T: Same as the nose, sweeter body with plenty of caramel and bready malt, peaty, smoky earth, oak, campfire, vanilla and toffee.

MF: Closer to medium that full, alcohol is deceptive and barely perceptible.

O: Really good, just as nice as Central Waters version, though definitely different with the smoky component. Right up there with the best BA Scotch ales I would think.
