3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ Upright... Poured dark brownish with a thin, light khaki head. This was very bourbon forward. Vibrant caramel and vanilla and pecan notes with oak and woody tones. The rye wasn’t too evident but the Six held up nice with all the complexities of the barrel aging. Even with all that bourbon flavor in this beer it didn’t seem to hot with booziness though.
