3.9/5 rDev +4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
11.2 oz bottle (best before Sept 2013) poured into a Innis & Gunn fluted snifter. Not sure how else to describe this glass. It's got the height of a tulip, but the shape of a snifter.
Appearance: Clear amber with a 1/4" rocky off-white head that slowly died down to a thin foam across the top over the course of a half hour. Lots of lacing noted.
Smell: Oak, whiskey, vanilla.
Taste: Definite whiskey bite and oak flavor, some vanilla. Not getting a lot of malt, but there is some underneath. It's hidden though. A bit boozy.
Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation on the tongue, surprisingly a bit airy while still having some thickness to it. Not fizzy....it's hard to describe really, but it's not sticky on the teeth and its thicker than water while not being very substantial.
Overall / Drinkability: Interesting beer, but I feel the malt got hidden in everything and was dominated by the oak aging. Tasty though, just not as deep and flavorful as I was expecting. As for drinkability, while I would not mind a larger serving, one is enough.
Serving type: bottle
