3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2018 2018-01-27. Black body, nice brown head fades. 4+ Aroma has big barrel (bourbon?) character, moderate alcohol throughout. 7+ Flavour is relatively alcoholic, but restrained for almost 12%. Rich dark malt base, barrel character. 7+ Average plus to medium bodied palate, good carbonation. Pretty nice, but not as weighty on the tongue as my preference for the style. 3++ 7-8/4/7-8/4/16+ Bottle from Barncat. Cambridge.
Deep black pour with a bit of chocolate and some nice sticky sweetness. Really intense and chewy. Really chewy and tasty. Bourbon quality is pretty solid and rich. Rich and sticky. There’s a touch of sticky sweetness. Pretty solid.
