3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at the brewpub. Pours a deep unclear amber brown with a small white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is very strong bourbon, vanilla, boozy and dark fruits, toffee and candied fruit. Flavor starts very sweet and vanilla with the bourbon being up front and aggressive. The fruit begins to come out with a decent toffee and prune note but never really shines though the finish as the booze comes to the front again followed by a touch of woodiness. Medium to medium full body and a soft carbonation. Not very well balanced but there are some notes in there that were very pleasant
