4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 mL bottle. Pours very dark brown with fine light brown head. Settles in minutes with minimal lacing. Aroma is chocolate, big sweet bourbon, nutty, toasted, roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet and caramel, up front, big chocolate, sweet bourbon, vanilla and caramel, with a huge chocolate and roasted finish. Not a tone of coffee, lots of caramelized sugar and toffee, more like a mocha. Almost reminiscent of Batch 3 Uncle Jacob’s in some respects. Very soft carbonation, medium-full body, and smooth texture. Very rich and well done.
