4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black with no head. Aroma is bourbon & chocolate. Taste is light bourbon & chocolate malts - then the almond hits you followed by a light malt finish. Dessert in a snifter.
On tap at The Vega in Pompano Beach, FL Poured a dark brown color with a soft white head. Aroma of chocolate, Whiskey, roasted malt, almonds, and a touch of smoke. Taste is just like the aroma. Palate was smooth with a slightly bitter coco like ending. Nice brew. burg326 (5482) - Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2012
On draft at Cigar City, poured a dark brown color with aromas of bourbon, roasted malt, almonds, and a touch of chocolate. Flavors follow suit, boozy aftertaste that was nice. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On draft at Cigar City tap room. What a surprise this was! Stopped in before the RareR Dos release. This was just a beautiful blend of chocolate and bourbon flavors, with a subtle mix of almonds. Everything worked in perfect harmony together. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2012
On draft at Cigar City-- it was also called "ABC Big Sound." Pours a deep burnt caramel color with an off-white head. Nose is lots of sweet malt with some big vanilla, barrel, and chocolate shavings coming through. I also get some very mellow bourbon notes. Flavor follows through and does not disappoint: bourbon and sweet malt with huge caramel, vanilla, and chocolate. The almond comes through as vanilla and melds very well with the barrel. This one is a beast. Mellow bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate in the finish. Wonderful sipping beer with a ton of flavors dancing around.
