3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
2013 edition, bottle number 336 of 400, $16.19, 22oz, black wax.
A- it pours black with a 1 finger head of tannish foam, good lacing.
A- very roasty, notes of chocolate, vanilla, some booze from the Whiskey barreling.
T- itís very hot. I get a ton of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, vanilla in the background, light notes of Whiskey.
P- on the light side of medium bodied, lightish carbonation, not the greatest mouthfeel.
O- like I said, very hot and not all that good tasting. I wonder what some cellaring would do but the carbo is already light. I canít give it a hearty recommendation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle split with DiarmaidBHK - pours pitch with a finger of khaki foam, nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty with some chocolate bourbon goodness. Taste is bittersweet with slightly bitter/dry finish. Solid effort.

This beer was really good it was smooth and had a real nice creamy head. Freedoms edge is getting better and better with their beers.
