3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from dak on 3/21/2010.
pours a dark brown shade of black with a very large cafe au lait colored head. lots of foamy lace.
really roasty aroma mixed with notes of cream, coffee, bitter cocoa, vanilla, caramel and some green spiciness (hops or barrel?).
the flavor is the same along with ashiness, loads of hoppy dryness and a bitterish spicy finish. not a lot of bourbon in here?
creamy mouth feel is kept drinkable with ash and dryness. 7/4/7/4/15/3.7

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours dark brown to black with a tan head. The aroma is oak, alcohol, roasted malt and bourbon. The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, oak, whiskey with some piney hops and earthiness that was somewhat unexpected. Medium bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and a high, prickly carbonation which took away from the beer.
