3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at Bruce’s. It pours darkest brown with a small tan head. The nose is fudge, treacle, oily, wood, bourbon, vanilla, fruit cake and toasted coconut. The taste is bitter-sweet, aniseed, toasty, wood, bourbon, earth, cocoa, light vanilla, spice, warming alcohol and dark fruit in the background. Medium-full body, fine carbonation and chewy mouth-feel. Very nice on the nose, but barrel aging doesn’t improve the base beer much. Decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown -- nearly black -- pour yields scant manila lace. Good retention, though, and the lace swirls up top long after.
Heavy barrel character, super dry, pretty complex finish as it descends. Dark fruits, sweetness from the barrel, bone dry finish. Low carb. The 11% is completely hidden, even at room temp. Impressive.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark black, not much head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, oak, chocolate. Taste follows suit with lots of chocolate and vanilla/bourbon barrel but not abrasive at all, smooth with extremely well hidden alcohol. Great beer as usual from CCB
