3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Blind Tiger a couple months ago. Aroma of whiskey and alcohol, slightly roasted malt, caramel malt. Flavor was really really hot. Just a lot of whiskey and this beer already tasted like alcohol before it was aged in barrels. Not good IMO.
