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

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.

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.

Draft. Light chocolate malt aroma. Brown-black with small head. Very sweet chocolate syrup and malt flavor. Okay but a bit cloying.
