BARLEYWINEO (106) - Tacoma, USA - APR 28, 2012
3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: Poured a deep, dark brown nearly black with very low carbonation leacing a very small circle of bubbles and some lacing
S: The French Oak is prominent with hints of cocoa, roasted malt, light espresso and some vanilla. The Jameson is very subtle on the nose but noticable.
T: The French Oak and Jameson peek first with a dry, oaky flavor, some cocoa, roasted malt and light espresso. The aftertaste is a lot of French Oak and Jameson. I have one major issue with this beer and that is the IPA role played a backseat.
M: Low carbonation. Plenty of taste.
O: Good beer but the low carbonation hampered the beer
