3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Solid nose of vanilla, bourbon and caramel chocolate. Thick black pour. Fast dissipating beige head. Solid bourbon vanilla flavor with a smokey malt finish that dries the palate and lingers on the side of the tongue. The bottle I have says 8.5% abv and not 10%. This beer needs a lil more meat to its mouthfeel and flavor to balance out the whiskey aging.
