3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Eulogy. Very dark copper pour with just a slight tan head that quickly disappeared. No particular aroma. Dark caramel malt flavors. Bourbon barrel notes are nice and smooth but obscure the underlying beer. Medium-light body. Not much depth beyond the Bourbon. Hints of dark red fruit. Raisins. Tootsie Roll. Wish it were thicker and ashier.
