2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Catch up rating from Saturday’s RS bottle share. The rumors of infection were swirling, and indeed something seemed a little off here. At that price point, I would feel ripped off....

Had the Cellar 3 version. A very nice interesting bourbon barreled stout. Pours a velvety black with a tan head. Smells of vanilla, bourbon, macadamia nuts and cherries. Taste is light, not super thick, with vanilla and cherries and a finish of boozy bourbon. Had in the bottle.

Bottle 75cl. Opaque dark brown with a frothy to minimal brown head. Sharp aromas of bourbon, dark chocolate, vanilla, spices. Robust bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Sweet and heavily bitter, with tremendous dark fruit and malt character, and a punishing bourbon finish. Blunt and heavy, very pleasant.

Bomber... Aroma is booze and dark fruit. Appearance is black with a tan head. Taste is sweet, dark malt, and booze with hints of toffee and caramel. Palate is a medium mouthfeel. Overall, a really well done beer. Very nice barreled beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught @ CBC 2015. Pours viscous black with a small creamy
dark mocha head that leaves some spotty trace on the glass
while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, burnt
caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark roast
coffee, milk chocolate, coconut milk, green chili and
bourbon alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel
is round, tiny viscous, slightly astringent, tiny boozy and
medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with
roasted malts, burnt caramel, butterscotch, vanilla fudge,
charred buttery wood, dark roast coffee, milk chocolate,
green chili and bourbon alcohol. A good stout with less than
optimal barrel treatment. Tons of green chili and buttery
