4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft goblet at 3Fs. Hmm... deep brown-black in color. A thin head with little lacing. Intoxicating bourbon smell. A nice, thick bourbon taste that demands to be taken in small sips. Deep roasted, but without roasty astringence, Brings up hints of root beer and Jaegermeister, too. I loves me BA’s.

Bottle @ Armin’s house, courtesy of theHoff. Thanks! Pours a murky dark reddish appearance with a thin tan head. Fairly herbal, spicy hoppy, caramel, dark fruity, whiskey aroma. Rich, big woody, heavy vanilla, tannic, caramel, whiskey flavor. Pretty good but a bit disappointing.

Bottle shared by THEHOFF! Dirty brown/tan pour, almost no carbonation and an aroma of bourbon & caramel. Flavor is also boozy bready caramel, nuts and very boozy bourbon and well balanced malt. Glad I got to try this.
