4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bomber. Drinking it to celebrate the end of Spring Semester. Pours dark, oily black/brown. Very opaque. Head is thoroughly brown with a rusty red tinge. Such a great looking beer. Aroma is slight chocolate and coffee but with a dry, woody scent. Mouthfeel is creamy, rich and slightly oily. Taste is chocolate, oak, a bit of malt, coffee. The hops are in the background. Not as dark as I expected but not in a bad way. Similar to a blend of milk chocolate shake and a shot of espresso. The alcohol is hidden pretty well and it is a fairly mellow beer. Guessing because of the barrel aging. This is a fantastic beer and makes me appreciate that there are beers out there like this. One of the top 10 beers that I’ve tried. If you can find it, buy it.
