3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Smooth vanilla, caramel and marshmallow in the nose. The flavor adds a rich dark fruit character that combines with sugary bourbon and creamy vanilla, giving the impression of a boozy yogurt raisin. Lingering bitter cacao at the edges of the tongue. Clean lager finish and incredibly well-hidden ABV make the glass go down much more quickly than it should.
