3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, over ripe fruits as well as lighter notes of bourbon. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, bourbon, late summer fruits that are very sweet, and malt, leading to a dry fruity finish. The alcohol is a bit too pronounced for my taste. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A: The beer pours almost black in color with a finger of tan head.
S: When the first thing you smell is butter, you’re rarely in for anything good. Lots of butter, a bit of roast and bourbon, a touch of vanilla, and some sourness. Not sure whether that’s vinegar or just too much booze.
T: The flavor is much the same. Heavy on the butter with a more pronounced sourness and even more booze. Light bourbon and vanilla flavors with lots of roast and oak, some coffee is also there.
M: Medium bodied with very low carbonation.
O: This was a nice contribution to the dump bucket.
