4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Catchup from the past. Bomber from the Co-Op in Davis, CA. Purple wax. Bottle No. 106. Year 2009. Pours very black with a 1 finger tan head. Strong aromas of oak and vanilla. More than full bodied with rather mild carbonation. The flavor is very smooth burnt malt, with treacle, vanilla and oak. Compares very favorably with Paradox. It develops complexity, and shows a little heat. Very, very good. Worth the cost? You only live once. And the aroma continuously tantalizes, and the taste ditto. Try to try it.
