3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ SLL. Pours a cloudy copper color with a foamy white head that settles to a thin film and leaves lots of lace. Smell is of malt, grain, caramel, toffee, honey, coffee bean, and yeast aromas. Tastes of caramel, toffee, coffee bean, vanilla, and slight bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate. Has a nice coffee presence but it is somewhat muted against the barrel aged qualities. Has a moderate level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel.
