3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted months ago during SF beer week at Beer Revolution. Going strictly from my notes. It has a light bourbon and wood nose. The flavor is sweet vanilla, caramel, cocoa, coffee and some bourbon. It’s lighter on the plate than you would expect. The finish is only slightly roasted and woody. I liked its sister beer Legitimate Child better.
