3.74/5  rDev -1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Purchased from one of the local cigar lounges.

A: Almost pitch black with decent head and retention.

S: Malt forward with a hit of the whiskey.

T: Malt and coffee with some sweetness.

M: Crisp. More carbonation than I would expect from a beer of this style. Maybe a tad thin.

O: Solid beer. Not my favorite of the style but still good.

Serving type: bottle

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

BBE Dec 14

Appearance: Dark, almost no light coming through. Thick-ish, tan head.

Aroma: Irish whiskey, booze, dried mint skunk, cocoa, treacle(molasses), some dark chocolate, faint oak. Upfront skunk though, maybe due to the clear glass bottle.

Taste: Not as good as the aroma. Tastes ok, malt and booze.

Mouthfeel: lighter bodied than you would expect with tons of carbonation.

Overall: I bet this is outstanding on draft, would be a great St. Patty's Day brew. I just don't under stand the clear bottle on this one. Not a bad beer at all, just think it could be more.

Serving type: bottle
