2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pour is a transparent dark amber with a foamy white head. Nose is a fair bit of bourbon, heavy wheat base and odd caramel malt, muddled and dirty with a hint of coconut and notes of milk chocolate. Taste is extremely sweet and not integrated at all. The bourbon is lighter, notes of apple juice and some overly sweet caramel. The chocolate and nib notes are extremely out of place and don’t fit in at all. There is tons of sugar, hints of booziness through the softly carbonated finish. The body is big, soft palate and creamy.

Cool - pralines )thx ferris), really really really white chocolaty. Like crazy. Extra sugar piled on - a liquid sugar, caramel, weak alc, vanilla and honey. Taste is not my thing at all. Way too strong to enjoy, heat, white choco, coconut? (Word of the day), don’t like this at all.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, hazy yellow copper pour, aroma of shortbread, pecan pie, vanilla. Taste - slight sour, oak, mild sweetness which is surprising given the aroma, sight vanilla finish. The aroma says dessert beer but I don’t get that in the taste at all. This is the 2013 vintage, so yea it’s supposedly somewhat infected however I am still enjoying this it’s just different then what I expected.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - Boozy white chocolate, coconut, caramel and nuts. Praline. Cloudy copper with a thin white head. Tastes like it smells with a boozy bourbon barrel finish. Great for a few ounces, but too much for a whole glass.
