3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle. Poured deep brown with a medium, well-retained smoked tan head. The aroma picked up lightly smoky bourbon and related oak, green coffee beans, and ashy malt, with licorice and bakerís chocolate supporting.. a little heavy on barrel and burnt notes, but still solid. The flavor found tangy bourbon and oak throughout, with peppery alcohol tart cherries, and light grainy bitterness around.. more sour barrel and bourbon over dark chocolates and ashy, smoked malt on the finish. Heavier-bodied with surprisingly lively carbonation on the palate.. alcohol was well-hidden considering its size.. this smoothed out as it had a chance to breathe, and ended up quite enjoyable.
