4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance is black with a thin, creamy tan foam cap that dissipated rather quickly. Aroma is dark chocolate, with vanilla notes also from the oak. Taste is dark chocolate that’s surprisingly sweet and gives way to vanilla and bourbon. Mouthfeel is medium for the style with little carbonation. This beer avoids being syrup like, which is good. Finish has a nice hop bite and leaves a warm, dry chocolate/coffee taste on the tongue. After about 5 minutes, I feel the pepper heat on my lips and tongue. Interesting.
Nearly black with a brown head. Roasted malt and chocolate with a nice oak backing. Bitter finish. Nice work williamlantz (28) - - NOV 17, 2017
