4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Old Grove. Pours a black with some brown hues on the top with a one finger tan head which lingers. Aroma is of vanilla, coffee, whiskey (smells like a smokey bourbon) roasted malts, and some caramel. Taste is similar to regular Victory At Sea but is dominated by the whiskey notes and as some boozy aftertaste. Has a medium-full body with a creamy, slighty oily mouthfeel and a semi bitter, slighty bozzy finish. Overall, a pretty nice version of Victory at Sea that could maybe use a little less boozyness to it.
