3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours black with a medium beige head. The aroma is loaded with sweet bourbon and sweet roasted malt. Ligher notes of chocolate and tobacco. The flavour is mainly sweet bourbon with notes of vanilla, oak and sweet ripe fruit. Light chocolate and sweet caramel. Quite boozy overall and not as thick mouthfeel as expected for the abv.

Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a slightly translucent dark brown cola with bubbly beige head that steadily dissipates into thinner lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, chocolate, vanilla, oak, roast, and mild notes of bitter hops. Tastes like it smells, but less decadent and more oaky. Mouthfeel is medium to medium-full bodied; a bit thin for 12%. Good, not great, and smells better than it tastes.

Bottle, thanks tim! Deep brown with tan head. Fruity aroma, vanilla, oak. Flavour is a very strong bourbon beer, fruit and vanilla are there but it’s quite boozy. Overall super nice though.

Bourbon, malt, look, start all there......finish is not. Seems out of balance with finish. Heavy Hershey chocolate at the end. So close.

Dark reddish brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is dark fruit, bourbon, roasted malt. Taste is dark fruit, bourbon, little vanilla, oaky dryness, a little hot still. Very tasty. At over $7 a bottle, it is worth the price. So-so lacing.
