3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On cask at the brewpub - Pours mahogany with a thin ring of light tan head. Smooth whiskey on the nose, but not any wood. Butterscotch, vanilla, and some caramel malt. None of the hopping of the original is present. Taste is sweet, with whiskey and caramel malt and a toasty finish. No hops, which is a bummer--that’s the best part of the base beer. Real thin and no carbonation. A bit of a disappointment.
