4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled, dated Jan 30th 2013, large sample. Dark color, short creamy brown head. Aroma of peat, chocolate, coffee, roast, leather, wood, hint of vanilla. Some sweetness in taste, quite bitter. Slight dry of the peat, but backed up with plenty of sweetness as well and some boozy alcohol. The bourbon itself is not that present (anymore), but it does balance out the loads of peat of the original beer. Decent balance, good beer.
