3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown color; frothy head. Mild but interesting aroma, with a clean wood character, giving a light oak bacteria sourness. Light body structure, quite common taste, based on roasted malt and caramel, but embellished with a gentle oak character and very light Bourbon vanilla. The final is mainly built on the roasted malt, quite dry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Near black colored, slight red and brown tones in there too. Medium sized beige head. Smoke, chocolate, ash, oak and vanilla in aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is also smoky with oaky and chocolaty tones, aftertaste dries with some hops and oak. For my opinion needs more body to have these barrel-oaky tones, still ok brew.
