4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2011 Very dark broWn pour, off white head. Aroma of baking pastry, burnt sugar, wood. More doughy toasty pastry on the flavor, vanilla, burnt sugar, bourbon, finishes very woody and dry. I really like the sharp wood balancing the nice sweet malts in this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Brouwers. Nose is bitter pine and caramel with a subdued wood . Taste is smooth wood wrapped around a nice bitterness with some fruity notes. I swear there’s a little prickle of spicy chile in there as well. Interesting beer.
