3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a snifter.
4.5 A: Clear deep amber color. Two fingers of beige frothy/creamy head. Retention is good given the ABV and a finger of lacing is left.
4.0 S: Oh boy, the barrel has had it’s way with this. Exquisitely potent leather with a hint of charcoal. Tobacco, raisin, plum, melon. Oak with supple tannins and vanillins. Caramel and toffee. Resiny hops with herbal and earthy notes. Barrel forward nose that smells great.
3.5 T: Again this is mostly barrel and unfortunately I can taste the whiskey more than the beer. Again tons of leather, tobacco, and raisin. Plum, oak, and vanilla next followed by caramel and toffee. Herbal and earthy hop flavors. Moderate bitterness.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy with a tannic finish.
3.5 D: This sure if something. It’s a whole hell of a lot of whiskey. I would prefer the barrel to complement the beer rather than dictate it.
