Bomber from Windmill Farm. Deep black/ruby on the pour. Woody whiskey nose with a bit of roast. Sweet booze and wood with a bit of a vanilla character. Some roastiness and dark fruit. Fairly sweet with a strong barrel component. Not very hopped. Very interesting blend.

Wonderful aroma of nuts, cashews, almost a hint of sour aroma? Complex mouth around, get the roasted nuts and malts. Still some residual sourness?

On tap. Black with a foamy tan head. Earthy roasted grain, rye whiskey, and red wine barrel like funky aroma. Bright lively palate. Sugary sweet whiskey, wine barrel sourness, lemon, brown sugar, and a vanilla, oaky, sugary, yet dry finish. A bit too sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a dark brown with a medium sized head. Aroma is of dark fruit, some vinegar and caramel. Flavor is again dark fruit to start, then comes some molasses and red wine aspects. FInish is some of the wood from the barrel aging. This is a nice slow sipper with a little something each sip.
