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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not quite a Baltic, very significant chocolate and significant roast. Some hop in finish. A tad thin but very good drinkability.

Tap at Rustico Alexandria. Pours a clear, deep ruby cola. No head really. Nose is paper, tomato, black pepper, thick candy syrup, licorice. Taste is thin, sweet, some tea, seasoned tomato, mild dry cocoa powder. Not my thing.

Not too much barrel. For sure a solid beer. Again maybe not the style most suitable for barrel aging.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out oak, lager yeast, and a bit of chocolate. Flavour reveals notes of oak, a little chocolate, and lots of lager yeast. Very lager-like, with loads of chocolate and oak. Medium complexity. Good stuff, just not really my thing.

Bottle at Bruce’s. It pours near black with a tiny tan head. The nose is fresh piney, toast, citrus peel, pine needles, soap and cocoa. The taste is bitter-sweet, toasty, earth, coffee, citrus peel, soap, pine and varnish. Medium and fine carbonation. Solid enough,but not a game changer.
