3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml. bottle poured in to a Snifter. Near black with a thin, tanned head. Roasted aroma with rich, dark malts, coffee, caramel, vanilla, bourbon barrel notes, salty liquorice, some alcohol dense notes. Taste is bitter/roasted. Full body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and roasted with lingering bourbon barrel. Excellent Stout, a bit to boozy with more subtle bourbon barrel would lift this beer up to a 4.
