4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle -
The beer pours out a black body, brown creamy head. Aroma has equal parts caramel, bourbon, wood, and spices. A mingling of flavors that really meld well with the residual sweetness left. Bourbon, wood, roasted malts, vanilla and alcohol all nicely balanced. Finish has a nice showing of bourbon and wood, slightly astringent too.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with about a finger of tan head. Aroma of bourbon barrel, chocolate malts, light coffee and smoke, touches of vanilla, a bit subdued. Taste is the opposite: immediately heavy bourbon barrel notes hit you, the whisky is almost overwhelming. There’s some vanilla and chocolate beyond that but not much else. Coffee and booze bitter finish. Body is rich and creamy to oily with low carbonation. A bit all over the place and not very balanced.
