Crushed at the Black Tot release. One hell of a beer. Plenty of bourbon to go around that lasts well past the finish. Definitely covers most of the flavor but it’s still excellent and as smooth as it gets. Like the original Tot, could use some aging, but unfortunately we’ll never know.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 black with a brown head. sweetned bourbon and maple syrup nose along with a small amount of chocolate malt - the bourbon masks the beer but it actually smells and tastes quite good. silky, delicate and oily on the palate, the sugar provide some heft and weight to the body that is missing in the other versions. decadent and chewy. should have bottled it.
