4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hand bottled nip of this with a big thanks due to StFun. Pours a pitch black with little to no head, absolutely no retention or lacing. Aroma no surprise with roasted malt, caramel, bourbon, wood, and some dried fruits. Flavor matches and is extremely smooth and creamy. Very solid, but I would rather have a nicely aged expy. Glad to have a chance at trying this and it’s definitely world class.
