1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Extra from someone...sorry! Translucent dark brown, minimal carbonation even with an aggressive pour. Some bourbon on the nose, oxidized malt, some burnt coffee. Taste is wet cardboard. Can’t get past it. Would suspect cork taint, but cork is composite cork, not natural. Nose is not as strongly corked as taste, but not right.

Bottle. Near black with a dark, tan head. Mild roasty malt and a little vanilla aroma. Smooth chocolate and creamy upfront but a boozy, sharp finish. A bit too carbonated for me.
