3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one has spend a few months chilling out. Really surprised by the forceful roast and oak as well as the minimal presence of the sweet orange peel and actual Bourbon. Frankly it borders more on the Scotch whisky side of the house... and yeah baby that is a good thing. Earthy, somewhat dry, minerally, leathery, and attacking crispiness upon the finish. More akin to a Danish styled Stout than Belgium which is fine by me. Only wished there was a tad more heft and sweetness to balance the bitter charred roast. I am liking this much more than expected but it still could use another 6-12 months of aging.
