4.4/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
12 oz bottle poured into a FW Barrelworks Teku
Appearance: pours a nice black with a light tan head that holds about 1/4" in my Teku.
Aroma: prominent smell of roasted malt, with some sweet chocolate when aerated in the teku
Taste: a little sweet on the front with the taste of roasted malt as expected. The finish is very nice, transitions to dark chocolate and some sweet bourbon/alcohol notes with some light nuttiness. I have not tried the anniversary beer but I am looking forward to it now.
Moutfeel: very nice, thick mouthfeel. This is one of the highpoints of this beer. Excellent fine carbonation. I prefer this beer on nitro but havent seen it in a while.
Overall: great beer that can be sipped alone or as a compliment to a meat and potatoes meal. Love this beer and am glad it's always around!
