4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black and completely opaque with a two finger beige head. Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring. The glass is left coated with sheets of soapy lacing. Looks great.
Slightly smokey, peat-y whiskey barrel aroma with earthy oak, spicy spirit, vanilla and coconut. Strong barrel presence with a prominent spicy whiskey character but still has plenty of roasted and silky malt notes. Hints of milk and dark chocolate, oatmeal, toffee and gourmet coffee bean balancing out the barrel.
Excellent spicy whiskey barrel presence that’s perfectly integrated into the complex malt bill. Dry oak is prominent with great whiskey flavor. Subtle vanilla along with silky chocolate, caramel, toffee and oatmeal. Slightly smokey with deeply roasted coffee bean compliment the whiskey flavor perfectly. Really complex yet easy to drink. Plenty of alcohol flavor but not overly hot. Abv well masked with subtle warmth in the finish. Way to easy to drink considering how strong it is. Another impressive beer from this brewery.
