4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle no. 212. Upon being poured into a glass, the appearance is a deep, clear auburn color with a medium tan head that fades to a ring. The aroma of the beer is heavenly with a strong booziness, yet the caramel malts balance it to the point of smoothness and blended perfection; furthermore, the taste mildly umami, mildly sweet, and a slightly bitter. Additionally, the palate combines a warming and boozy finish, medium-full body, soft carbonation, and an oily texture, which is almost too much for you to process all at once.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Wow, if you liked the Imperial Three Blind Mice, just wait until you try this one. It poured a dark brown color with a small light tan head. The aroma was of bourbon, and lots of bourbon with roasty maltiness and some chocolate layers. The taste was on the bourbon side as well, kind of sweet, with a medium body and an oily texture. Good carbonation, very tasty, drinkable beer. An excellent Bourbon Barrel beer.
