3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours black with a dark tan head. Bourbon aroma. med + or full bodied. Flavor is very bourbon/vanilla with dark malt, and I think coffee. Maybe chocolate. Smooth. Think there’s no heat. Oak comes along after awhile. It’s malty, but not seemingly undry. Very nice.
