3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from craft beer outlet shared with Linh and family. Pours a deep hocolate amber body somewhere between a deep brown ale and a stout. Aroma is lots of roast, sweet whiskey and oak. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of whiskey, sweet toasted malts, light cocoa, toffee, caramel malts and roast. Interesting - and I wouldn’t have pinned this to be a stout necessarily.

Dark body, but light penetrates it when held up to light, offwhite head, large bubbles, not much lacing. Aroma is fainter than I expected, roasted malts, slight bit of booze.Taste is again roasted malts and a backbone of whisky, a touch boozy. Better once it warms up a bit. Not bad.

Good and very scent. Decent with flavor. Not so much to taste. I do not really know what to think about this beer. But it was okay to drink.

Draft at brews. pours black with almost no head.There is seriously like no aroma to this brew, i get a slight smokey chocolate aroma, needs an aroma boost for sure. Taste is so so, hints of dark fruit and semi sweet chocolate, not getting anything from the barrel. meh.

Draft. It is a smoky, baconny beer that would fit more under the smoked category. By far the best beer from these guys. Ironically it is on tap.

Pours black with a marginal head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, caramel, and slight whiskey aroma. Taste is chocolatey, coffee, roasted nut. Bold taste that fades to a slight metallic taste. Still quite yummy.

This beer is all about the malt! Starts of with chocolate,roasted malts,nougat!Vanilla,slight buttery(probably from the casks).As the temp increases in draws toward coffee and caramell.
The taste immmediately hits you with roastedmalts,dark chocolate, a little alcohol,coffee.Ashy finish.
Palate is thinner than I thought it would be...
But in all a very good beer!

Good, complex beer. The whiskey flavor wasn’t overpowering like most whiskey casks are.
