3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is huge - almost chewable - and at 6% quite unbelievable. I thought I was drinking a 8 percenter. Big rich roast character with some moderate smoke. A hint of vanilla and sweetness, but it’s a big, brutal beast. A quite sipper for sure.
