4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
On tap at 10 East. Clearly the best BP I have ever had, and there’s no two-ways about it. Huge in every way possible. Loads of bourbon and dark fruit in the aroma, cocoa, light wood, toffee and black licorice. The aroma is just as stunning with tons of chocolate covered raisins, vanilla, bourbon, treacle, and figs. In a blind tasting I’m betting this could pass as a impy stout.
