3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy dull brown color with a fluffy foam... On the nose its big round and boozy, with rich brown sugar, molasses, a touch of earthy barrel notes and even some smokey peat. The palate is much of the same with rich mouthfeel and soft balance with flavors. The bourbon is definitely upfront but there is enough complexity in the bourbon and base beer for the final product to be pleasing and worth seeking out !

Notes from 4/26/2014. Typical bourbon barrel (brown sugar, vanilla, oak) with some smoked malts, caramel, and toast. I also got some leather (? Canít read my writing). Anyway, I ticked it 4 stars on the day, my notes add up to 4.1. So not too far off.
