Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottled, BB 7/15/19. Poured deep brown (not quite black) with just a bigger-bubbled ring for head. The aroma was on the heavy side with peated malts, licorice, and soy leading.. some vanilla and peppery alcohol too.. it relied heavily on the whiskey, and I really enjoyed said whiskey character. The flavor found mostly soy at the core, with veins of licorice and burnt black malts through it.. the whiskey gave smokey character around the edges, but seemed to be a shadow of the nose.. peppery alcohol rose as the drink progressed, and burned the tongue a little after the finish. Heavy-bodied and boozy, but surprisingly thin at times on the palate.. this wasn’t entirely focused, but it had a lot of very good elements.
