reebtogi (6141) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 9, 2011
3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint on tap at the brewery poured a reddish brown color with a thin off-white head. Aroma was whiskey and roasted malts. Taste is dominated by whiskey and alcohol with some roasted malt bitterness and a malty sweetness as well. There is little detectable hop in this beer. I found that the aging in the bourbon barrels contributed an overpowering whiskey flavor to this beer and that the alcohol burn was also overkill.
