3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Came to the table a murky mahogany color with a thick and creamy British khaki head. The aroma featured plenty of sweet caramel, brown sugar, roasted coffee, earthy/peaty notes, woodsy bourbon qualities, and some touches of chocolate here and there. Went down medium-bodied and relatively creamy. The taste started with quite a bit of caramel and brown sugar and quickly transitioned to a rich roasted coffee bitterness. Lots of woodsy bourbon and peat throughout. Lactose qualities were abundant as well. The alcohol was well-hidden. Pleasantly drinkable.
