3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of light roasted malt, very light whiskey notes and wood. Flavour brings out whiskey upfront, vanilla and chocolate. The usual cheap perfumey JD notes are somehow not present, but rather offer a nice woody, caramel quality. Light-bodied and silky on the palate. Not the most elegant or complex beer -- I don’t understand the insanely high ratings for this. Nevertheless, a very enjoyable beer.
