3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at GTMW. Poured cloudy medium-deep brown with not a whole lot of head on top. The aroma was sweet, with bourbon and chocolate malts leading.. roast and tangy barrel accents.. came across as muddled and not very exciting. The flavor found tangy bourbon and oak upfront, with thick, sweet chocolate malts and vanilla behind.. solid balance.. a little better than the nose. Medium-bodied and not quite roasty enough on the palate.. surprisingly thin at times.. I was hoping for a lot more here.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pouring at GTMW 2012
Jet black pour almost no head. Sweet aroma vanillas and light chocolates but overall pretty light, likely due to the lack of any real carbonation. Well coated thick palate. Flavor is sweet touch of bourbon notes (vanilla and almost a maple syrup quality) clearly cocoa comes through and a bit of butter.. very even and well balanced. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Draft at OF. Mild and mellow, delicious dark beer, Tyranena’s forte. Mellow carbonation, soft oaky bourbon tones. Big and doughy, full bodied. Excellent.
