4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served from a 12 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a rich glossy black with some ruby edges. A nice mahogany head. Rich roasty malts, sweet brown sugar, bourbon, and barrel fill the nose, with a heavy booziness but not a pure alcohol. The flavors follow with a rich full roast malt, sweet oaky bourbon, peanut butter blossom cookies, brown sugar, molasses, very nutty, some buttery-ness. Very full mouth with a good drying oak on the tongue and a alcohol burn on the roof and cheeks. The booziness is there but itís not raw alcohol heat. It is full of flavor and intensity. I can see why there is a lot of love for this brew and I can see why some people would give it a lower rating. I really enjoyed it and itís worth seeking out.

Simply an unconscionable amount of alcohol. However, the palate is rich, lengthy, and only a bit slick. Oats, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, molasses, but all in balance and moderation. A little honey and stickiness on the finish.

Bourbon and chocolate aroma. Tan head with a lasting ring, no lacing. Soft creamy palate. Huge bourbon aftertaste. Overall very strong. All in all ok. Might be awesome after some aging.

Bottle @ Zeebra 2015, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, some vanilla. Quite thick and a bit boozy. Bit too heavy on malty sweetness and alcohol.
