3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle bought from the brewpub (Munster, IN). Pours a rich deep blackish hue, richer deep dark body with brownish ruby edges and bottom showing some glow. A frothy tannish head atop laces small, rings ok. Aromas are oaky, cognac or brandy offers some fruit, vanilla, some thinness, soap, and gentle roast, cocoa, pretzels and toasty biscuits. Soapy, fruity, and a Brandy appeal. Fruity, apple and oak, vanilla, a touch sticky. Initial is brandy, some mellow roast, toast, and biscuits. Vanilla, more brandy, spirit, and toffee. A bit thinner, the apparent Brandy barrel (even though they say itís Bourbon) really offers some richer flavors up front. Middle is a bit toasty, cocoa, some gentle Tootise Roll. A bit roasty as we round the corner, some warmth, richer oak and tannic qualities. Vanilla, oak, touches of apple, gentle spirit. This isnít hot, it is a bit thin, the spirit isnít offensive, but itís there. I was quite surprised by the Brandy element even though they swear itís bourbon. Interesting. Finish is a bit dry, tannic, vanilla, brandy. Some gentle roast and toast. Ok.
