HuskerTan (1520) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 22, 2016
Bottle. A- Alcohol, sharpies, chocolate. A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head. T- Alcohol, cocoa. P- Full body, sharp texture, average carbonation, abrasive finish. O- I had looked forward to this one only to take a sip and be whipped with a palate shocking abrasiveness. Maybe I just got a triple strength bottle or something but this was like liquid sharpie. I’ve had smoother bourbon.
