3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle at home - pours deep dark brown with only some foamy film over the beer. Low carbo overall. Rather bland bourbon aromas, a bit smoked, leather. vanilla and cacao. Veru smooth silk soft mouthfeel, just a hint of alcohol. Very balanced, nice roasty and malty aromas. Bitter finish, yet gentle. Tastes better than it smells, overall a decent beer.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; dark black pour with tan head, quite big bourbon aroma, very bourbon forward taste with some medicinal phenols, sweet roasted malts, bit to heavy on the bourbon for me.
