3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by Bruce. Aroma is black tea, vanilla, and oak. Pours thin and flat hazy brown. It looks like crappy coffee. Taste is mild oak, tea, and slight chocolate malt. Very light flavor that literally disappears on the tongue. A flat mouthfeel on top makes this rather offputting.
