3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"This brew starts off too sweet to be really great in barrels but it’s still pretty nice and fairly unique to see this style with the ol Elijah Craig treatment. Honey and tons of vanilla and booze come through, with little of the original Belgian spice and some of the fruit. Definitely a sipper."
