3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rating this so I remember which one I had. PURPLE WAX. Great sweet bourbon aroma, with lots of alcohol. Jet black, slightly brown aorund the edges, perfect. Taste is more mild than many bourbon aged beers, and less harsh. I’d call it a ’session’ bourbon aged beer, if you will. Lots of sweet bourbonish tastes that fall off pretty quick, that’s why it’s not a 10. The not too thick palate really works to make this very drinkable. But the cost, $30, knocks the overall experience down for me quite a bit. This was a $12-$15 experience, not $30-$33, what it’s costing in Chicago. At this price, I’ll never buy it again.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, smallish creamy head, opaque black color, aroma of carob and dried figs, with some chocolate and coffee, flavor of coffee, dark chocolate, some chocolate cake and some cinnamon spiciness, just a bit heavy. Quite good but could be better.

@Basunen: vilken härlig doft av bourbon-fat. Smaken har en mycket god balans. Stora chokladtoner, vanilj, söt bourbon och kaffe. Härlig mjuk eftersmak.
