Cigar City Brewing Big Sound Scotch Ale (Bourbon Barrel Aged)
I got a chance to share this with most of the runners after our first official run, the post Savannah Brew Fest Recovery Run. The original version of this beer was not my favorite from CCB (although I need to re-visit it, my enjoyment of big sweet beers has grown since I first tried it), but this barrel aged version is quite incredible. Sweet and smooth with the perfect amount of bourbon, not too strong but strong enough to be noticed. The malts are rich and sweet with flavors of figs, raisins and caramel. Simply put Cigar City Brewing Big Sound Scotch Ale (Bourbon Barrel Aged) is an outstanding beer.
