4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Tallahassee Brewfest. Pours an opaque brownish black with thin tan head and light lacing. Aromas of fresh vanilla, hints of roasted coffee malts, bourbon sweetness in the middle, dark fruits, and dark bittersweet chocolate on the back end. Taste is the vanilla sweetness up front, bourbon and oak smokiness in the middle, and dark chocolate bitterness on the back end. Finishes smooth and thick on the tongue, leaving lingering notes of all the tastes blended well. Hopefully they make this again, because it was amazing.
