3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle poured. 2014 vintage. Listed at 10% Pours a muddy brown color with a swirling fizz head. Sweet aroma heavy with bourbon. Bourbon really comes through here, with sweet caramel, and even has a bit of whiskey burn late in the palate. Finishes cool. A little to sweet but I could have expected this. Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is like a brown ale, with some nutty and toasty notes to it, but a bit of Belgian yeast and dark fruits to it. Taste is slightly sour and yeasty up front, but stays pretty smooth. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750, capped. Pours a murky dark brown with a surging, fizzy tan head that sticks around forever. Big sweet nose, lots of caramel and molasses and apricots. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, molasses, apricots, and, unfortunately, an aluminum note near the finish that throws it off. Mild metallic sweet finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from Special Brew in Lynwood, WA. Pours coppery/ruddy dark brown with a slight tan head/smear. Aroma of treacle, chocolate and very light vanilla. Full bodied. Flavor is treacle, yeast/banana, chocolate, and bourbon light. Heat is noticeable, but not bothersome. Banana gets stronger with time. I’m liking it.
