3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Huge thanks to yespr for that one. Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, small brownish head. Heavy-malty and alcoholic aroma. Starts very, very intense malty, notes of strong coffee, some bitter cacao chocolate, woody-scratchy notes. Hints of liquorice. Finish still intense malty, alcoholic, goes down burning. Too much for me!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a dark, dark brown. Aroma is lovely - sweet with lots of dark fruit figgy rumminess and meaty soy sauce. Stunned I can’t detect booze in the aroma. Full body, medium carbonation. A boozy delight. There’s some heat from the booze, but this is lovely - dark choc, bitter coffee, burnt treacle, rum, sticky dark fruit, ash, smoke, wood... The booze is so well integrated, it doesn’t jar at all. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Black with a medium sized slowly diminishing light brown ok lacing head. Heavy bourbon notes of coconut, vanilla and licorice all sorts. Cocoa, chocolate, light grain, burnt malt, hefty alcohol warmth, white sugar. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Medium sweet, light bitterness. Tickling alcohol on the gums and a burn on the tongue. Ok, but too rough. Light dry and astringent finish.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This starts of strong but settles a bit as it warms and your palate acclimates. Strong bourbon and roasted malt aroma. Great black color with substantial dark brown head for a beer with this ABV. Smooth and silky palate with decent carbonation. Bourbon hits up front at the first sips but if you’re patient the complexity of this comes through. Deep roasted and charred wood flavors with some coffee and vanilla, which is finished with a nice hops bitter dryness. Magnificent.
