4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Creamy inch thick rocky brown head on a black body. Whisky barrel notes on roasted malts and sweet liquorice fill the nostrils. Full bodied and with an oily texture, the beer seem to grow slightly in the mouth. Vanilla and sweet liquorice. Oh, and there’s a chili warmth present.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
4 oz sample from a tap to my glass at the BBF 12. Pour was mirror black with small to med beige head, small amt of lacing. Aromas and taste of peat, cofffe, burnt wood, licorice, biscuit, and light pepper. This one was way hotter then the non barrel aged weasel rodeo. A little too much smoke, coffee, and roast for me.
