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 baker’s 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.

On tap. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is like aroma but also with flavours of liquorice, dark fruits, coffee and a nice bourbon taste too (didn't know that aspect in advance). Full bodied with a long aftertaste of expresso and bourbon. Pretty good if perhaps a bit too dominated by the bourbon in it.
