3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out a murky dark cola brown under a fizzy and loudly carbonated head that disappears really fast, like soda. Strong aroma of whiskey and bright oak tannins with a bit of earthy chewy dark malts, a touch of pepper and something like rose petals. The taste hits right up front with that whiskey tone, bringing earthy caramel and oak and vanilla, a touch of oats, and that bright and semisharp white oak tannin. Fades into a generic earthy Old Ale flavor of toast and warm earthy sweetness, The aftertaste reminds you of the whiskey from the start. It’s a big one, and could use more time to mellow all around, particularly that oak tone. It’s a very strong whiskey contingent.
