3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Speakeasy. Rich deep viscous black pour with nice darker tan head that falls to a thin layer pretty quickly. Nose of deep roast, touch of chocolate and dried raisins soaked in vanilla infused bourbon. Good thicker mouth feel, carbonation is a bit lively for the style. Boozey dark fruit, licorice, charred malt. Finishes too ashy and with harsh vodka booze for me. Taste way hotter than 9.5%.

Bottle. Deep black color. Boozy bourbon taste. Sweet and boozy yet very drinkable. Very good. Different from the other one

Big fan of Syndicate BBA. Scarface is part of their infamous series. Can’t find much info on what barrels used. Speakeasy is an interesting brand wish they let the brewers talk more about their beers. The Black Hand is wonderful especially with TCHO ingredients added.

Pours very dark brown, with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and oak. Taste is slightly sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, and malts. Not a great BA imperial stout, with the bourdon very slightly there. Still a good brew, thumbs up.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark black with tan head... Aroma of caramel, vanilla, bourbon.... Flavor is fairly thinner than I expected, roasted malts, oak, dark chocolate and lots of smoke... Solid but a little disappointing

Dark brown color, light brown head. Very light barrel notes. VERY light. More roast and chocolate notes to speak of. Maybe an ashy hint here and there. No real vanilla or bourbon tho.

draft, this one was ok, one of the lightest barrel treatments in a beer that i have had. Base was moderate, on the thin side, a little boring overall. Really not much to report.

A fantastic bourbon barrel beer. Pours a beautiful deep black with a brown head. Smells of bourbon, with some vanilla and caramel. Taste is very smooth with lots of bourbon and vanilla, and a smooth finish. Had on tap at the brewery for Beer Week.

Nice aroma. Milk chocolatey, plenty of vanilla from the bourbon, good balance of flavors. Well done overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is very bold. I get some big chocolate and roasted malt as well as some oak and a light bit of soy sauce. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
