4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque brownish black with thin, lacy tan head and little to no lacing, but a nice brown film on the way down. Aroma was bourbon sweetness, with an undertone of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste follows: vanilla, dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, and a hint of booze. Really smooth and easy to drink considering the abv; great stuff.

8 oz. pour at the brewpub. This is near black with a hearty bourbon aroma, not just blunt vanilla. It’s very oaky with real whiskey going on. The palate is slick and rich. I commend Wicked Weed greatly on the use of barrel aging here. It’s very strong, but I get excellent nuances from the barrel and the beer itself still comes through with a rich flavor of roasted coffee and brownies. So. Good. This brewery will continue to impress me, I think.
