4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft, dionysian_son is spot on here. Pours motor oil black with a small creamy mocha head. Aroma is very rich, lots of barrel, oaky wood, bourbon, some big chocolate, molasses, licorice, coffee. Much the same in the flavor, well rounded, with a nice slightly biting finish. Medium full to full body and a soft carbonation. Good beer

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at CPK, London. Pours dark black with a fine, beige foam head. The nose holds molasses, mild burnt wood and dark chocolate. Full flavor, medium to big sweet, with more molasses, some brown sugar, dark chocolate, plums, figs, modest roasted malts. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Moderate warmth on the finish, with light alcohol, very mild burnt wood, more dark fruits and rich cocoa malts. Excellent beer. The barrel treatment is there but not oppressive. Seamless. Wonderful.

Keg @ CPK. Deep brown with no head. The nose is huge bourbon, big woody sugary notes. Some vanilla. The taste is similarly outsized, plenty of big toasty coffee and chocolate notes. Plenty of bourbon and booze. The body’s full and thick, but drinks very well for 11%. Overall, really nice.
