3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2008 On-tap at BP Linda Vista. Pours black with a tan, somewhat sticky head. Smells mildy fruity to me, sweet malty, dry, just a hint of bourbon, vanilla and oak. Tastes of dark fruit, wood, vanilla, and a touch of bourbon. The barrel flavors are very mellow and blend well with the flavor of the beer. Full bodied, dry, active carbonation.
