Bottle enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown with a creamy tanned head. Smell of bourbon, vanilla, toffee, dark malts, caramel, hints of booze. Medium to heavy sweet, bourbon and toffee, vanilla, some toast, dark malts. Moderate bitter finish. A step up from the original! More complex and interesting than the regular in all ways

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. An unclear brown beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white head leaving curtains. Bourbon and oak on the nose, vanilla and some roasted notes. Coconut and some dark chocolate. Medium to full body and a very soft carbonation. Dark chocolate, nuts, roasted malt notes, vanilla and some coconut hints in the flavor. Long finish with dark chocolate and some bourbon. Not a bad one, but it lacks finesse. 151110
