Super bourbon aroma! Strongest bourbon scented beer to date. Strong barrel-aged flavor on the tongue straight away. Delicious If you love barrel-aged beers!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to trade with FullObs. Batch 75, about 20 months old. Dark brown pour with a small foamy head that fades to a thin ring. Aromas are whiskey, musty oak, vanilla, cocoa, and caramel. Tastes pretty heavy on whiskey. Sweet caramel and molasses come through too. Lots of vanilla as well. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body. Well made but too heavy on the whiskey for me.

Poured dark brown with aromas of chocolate, light lactose, some vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Flavors matched the aromas but the bourbon is overpowering, if you like bourbon, then you will like this beer.
