3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Humpy’s. Mahogany with a small head. Aroma of peat smoke, dark fruit, caramel and light wood. The flavor is some astringent smoke, sweet caramel malt and a very faint whiskey. Medium body with mild carbonation and a oily mouth feel. Had this at the 2011 GABBF and it seemed better there, more JD barrel character. This one was pretty peaty or maybe a whole pint of this just got to me. Still, pretty solid beer.
