Bottle at home from drink storeGreat nose and great flavor, for 8.1% the beer is not hot and drinks easy
i think that it is made in Old Bushmill’s Irish Whiskey barrels.
Although it is a stout, t, vanilla, full bodied, lots carbonation, rich, toasty,long tongue numbing, dry finish. Complex stuff.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fairly dark brown, bubbly watery looking eggshelled head. Best feature is the nose, creamy and very pillowy caramel woodiness. Initial taste is quickly bitter, brassy and lean soy tang later on. Carbonation is fairly flat - perhaps due to the enormogushertimes, heavy on the mouthfeel however. Finishes spicy sweet with some roastiness and linger is back to lean soyiness.
