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.
