3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with a medium tan head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma is very subtle and has light roast...not finding a ton of bourbon or barrel in the nose. Flavor has light roast and faint vanilla...tastes a bit like a cookie...very faint bourbon...tastes good but barely a hint of bourbon or barrel. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is roasty/vanilla.
