2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer smells great but even a small sample is hard to drink. It is clear red w/ a small white head. It has a great big bourbon barrel coconut nose. Once you taste it, it’s really hot and boozy, very sweet w/ a creamy texture and all that sweetness brings out some cherry. In the words of the illustrious 2pac: too thick n cummy.
