3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Firkin on the bar at The Old Toad. Beer tastes better when poured via gravity. Body is stained wood - ruby light shines through if held to a lightg. Nose has chocolate, cherries, nicely hopped. Flavor is cocoa, cherry, caramel, some wood. Spicy finish with lots of fruit, a hint of alcohol. Great body - only slightly carbonated but still a pleasure.

I enjoyed this beer on hand pump which keep the carbonation down and the flavor and temp up. This added to the rich malty flavor as well as the subtle hop flavor.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a transperent brown with a nice fluffy off white head . Mild aromas of choclolate, roast and carmel malt. Taste is mild with a presence of chocolate and carmel malt slightly sticky with a nice chocolate finish. After drinking everything bourbon barrel aged it is nice to be able to chill out with a nice basic brew like this..
