GT2 (8176) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 21, 2012
4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at PPD. Pours murky burnt umber. Weak head. Nose is sharper sour barrel, red wine, deeper chocolate ganache, thick caramel and tiramisu. Cinnamon cake and vanilla. Yum. Taste is a tad chalky and yeasty with mild hot booze, dark chocolate, rich ganache and spicy wood. Palate is thick, bitter, dry, dense. Could use less chalk and drying wood/sawdust character. Still very nice. Not as good as the normal BA version though. Less bourbon character.
