4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Cork print is "Earth, Wind and Beer". Pours a nice dark brown with a 4 finger creamy darkish tan head. Aroma of very smooth dark malt with very subtle, but strong, darkish fruit. I keep thinking bourbon, then I read the description. So. Bourbon. Full bodied. Flavor is very bourbon/vanilla with lots of dark fruit and something that makes me think of the old, dry gingerbread crackers. Meanwhile the head is collapsing into degenerate, random lacing. It’s not exactly dry, but the various flavors tend to hide the malty sweetness. OMFG. JTDC. My head is expanding exponentially.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Really a nice bourbon, vanilla oaky, light coconut, sweet dark chocolate aroma. Initially, there’s some fruity notes that are then surpassed by dark chocolate, roasty malts, mild bourbon, light woody flavor with a bit sweet, chocolate finish. The bourbon is tame but nice. One of my favorite offerings from Uinta thus far.
