3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours an oily, dark brown body and a small, tan head. Quite a lot of vanilla on the nose, with dark chocolate, roasted malts and bourbon. A bit one dimensional maybe, but really pleasant, even though I don’t care too much about of JD. There’s some sweetness in the flavor, but it feels quite dry on the palate. Lightly warming, full-bodied and soft on the carbonation. Coffee, dark chocolate and some vanilla in the flavor, finishing with a pleasant hoppy bitterness in addition to the roasted flavors found initially. Pleasant indeed. Starts a bit boring, but after a sip or two I really enjoy it. 120915
