3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Chuck’s, pours black with a very small tan head. Nose brings out huge notes of bourbon upfront, followed by vanilla and cocoa. Flavour is all bourbon and booze upfront, with a huge amount of heat and bourbon, with secondary notes of vanilla and cocoa. Way too boozy and bourbony but it works in small amounts. Very good for what it is.
