4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaska på GH. Delar med Isabel. Stor kropp. Eftersmaken är lite askig och astringent, annars snudd på världsklass. Precis lagom bourbon. Rund och len. Möjligen lite väl spritig, speciellt ouppvärmd.

Dark black color, small brownish head. Roasted, sweetish aroma. Full-bodied. Very roasted, a bit sticky, vanilla, bourbon flavors. Long whisky-roasted aftertaste. Nice, but perhaps too much bourbon.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Hallamshire House, Sheffield. Clear, deep chestnut brown with a cherry red tinge. Beige halo of a head. Aroma is an instant hit of bourbon. Lots of melted dark chocolate. Booze soaked vine fruits. A dark honey sweetness too. Taste has a bitter, dry roast coffee element. The boozy vine fruits make the finish dry and warming. Might have expected more oatmeal smoothness, but nevertheless this is the kind of beer you don’t want to end. Very nice.

Bottle from Beer HIve, Edinburgh 
Pitch black, frothy tan head that dissipates, some lacing
Aroma of deep soft roasted malts, soft coffee, bit woody, plain chocolate, getting some of the barrel aging, hint of dark fruits
Taste of deep rich soft bitter roast, woody, touch of whisky, soft burnt notes, bitter dark chocolate, rich dark smooth malts, some espresso, quite milky from the oats, some alcohol noticeable, rich flavour
Palate - soft carb, medium to full body, creamy texture. Finish - warming alcohol, as main flavour, soft bitter burnt roast, rich malt bitter bit dry alcohol tail
Overall - Good stuff but a tad overpriced here at £11 a bottle
