2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black pour and settles black. Quick fading dark brown head that leaves a thin collar. No lacing but big alcohol legs.
Salted Vegemite, chocolate, raisins and dark fruits. Notes of oak and medicinal alcohol. Just small amounts of the stranahan whisky.
Iodine, dark, salted chocolate, stewed and almost rum soaked dark fruits, oak and medicinal alcohol. There is some roasted malts but not a lot.
Thick, heavy, oily and just big. Quite boozy. Good amount of tannins with this as sticks to mouth well. Low carbonation.
Interesting but the ocean voyage really changed the barrels. Not as good as when Breckenridge or Great Divide use that barrel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours jet black with a a few brown bubbles on top which quickly disappear. Nose is big on whisky. Notes of salty dark chocolate and bittersweet coffee beans mix with whisky. Lamington notes come across. Taste is spice and peppers with heavy dark and bitter cocoa. Loads of whisky with a whisky bite to finish it. Unlike most barrel aged beers I've ever had. Quite a creamy mouthfeel and not as boozy as I expected with the cask ageing and abv. Weird and crazy stuff
