Taste is sweet and roasty with malty notes, hints of oak, wood and alcohol. Finish is boozy and sticky with hints of roastiness, oak and malts. Unbalanced, quite sweet and sticky.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle batch 197. A generous pour creates a small quickly disappearing light brown head. Real heavy on the whiskey, lots of oak, licorice allsorts, tarmac, light hard roasted malt. Warming alcohol. Medium body, oily texture, soft/medium carbonation. Medium sweet with little bitterness, a little thin texture for such a heavy beer. I guess this comes down to if you like all the whiskey and oak.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with no head or lacing. Immediate aroma of oaky vanilla, bourbon and raisins. Definitely dark, salty chocolate present too, as well as a touch of molasses and grass. Taste contains dark chocolate, salt, and almost a port & whisky cocktail flavour. Red grape aftertaste with pronounced bourbon flavours. Lack of carbonation is a little syrupy but I like the unique flavour profile.
