3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap today @ Barcade with Erica/Stiffler/Kayla. Pours dark brown and muddy. Good boozy taste with some sweet/salty caramel notes. It’s also tart, awesome. Big fan of this beer. Moderate viscosity enables it to deliver the rich flavors but not overly heavy.

On draft at Tap Room 307. Not much aroma. Lots of whiskey in the flavor, and a bit astringent. A little lighter than expected. Pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours a dark amber color with a finger or so of off-white head.
S: Rather sweet with a nice maltiness to it. Good toast, toffee, and caramel with a mild oakiness and bourbon aroma. Some dark fruit notes and brown sugar. A touch of dark malt in there, too.
T: A mild roasted malt flavor up front. Toast, bread, toffee, and caramel provide a nice sweetness. The oak flavor is a bit more pronounced than anticipated, and there is some sweet bourbon and vanilla in the background.
M: Medium to full in body with a moderate level of carbonation.
O: Not a ton of barrel influence, but a nice bit of oak and whiskey to it.
