3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Whoa, very boozy! The aroma is light, pleasant chocolate and belies what is to follow: sweet, strong beer with strong whisky/bourbon oak flavor. A bit off-putting at first, but grows better as you sip it. Which is what you will do, as this is definitely a sipping beer. ABV 11% for the Bourbon Barrel Stout variety.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz Bottle. Pours dark with a decent beige creamy head that is somewhat lasting that leaves rings of lacing after each sip. Aroma is woody, bourbon and vanilla. Light to medium bitter, mild sweetness, a light and thin body for this style with moderate carbonation. Leaves one wanting too much more. If you are weak this is for you.
