4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012 bomber from trade with michaelinwa. Big want knocked off. Pours a very dark mahogany color with a small beige head that fades quickly. Huge aroma of bourbon, maple syrup, caramel, toffee, alcohol, and vanilla. Taste is syrupy sweet and very smooth. Great balance of flavors with the bourbon standing out just a tad. Finish has a very slight alcohol heat which is nice. Bourbon, caramel and vanilla lingers. Thick, chewy and sticky mouthfeel. Really nice sipping beer for the winter. If I get another I will most likely lay it down for a bit. Could improve with age.

Bomber procured from the Cookster (thanks, Jason. I’ll get your money to ya soon). Pours a dark brown, nearly opaque with a tan head that had decent retention and okay lacing. Nose is malty, barrel, some toffee. Mouth is full bodied and creamy, some booziness, milk chocolate, malts, dried fruit, a bit of an alkaline finish that wasn’t attractive, but overall a decent brew... particularly on a late January night with the wind howling and the mercury falling like a rock.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear looking dark brown, almost black. Strong aromas of bourbon, booze, barrel. Peaty taste, roasted malts, booze bottles, American bourbon, backcountry moon shiners, Kentucky. West Virginia. Bootlegging. Coal mines. This is over the top boozy and heavy. Good, but probably wont seek out again.
