4.5/5 rDev +3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Glass Used: Imperial glass
Appearance: A deep Grade B Maple syrup color; thick pour with a few mils thin head.
Smell: For me, I got a huge whiff of praline & carmelization with oak & some bourbon with the vapor of the alcohol.
Taste: Perfectly balanced bourbon and oak upfront, finishing with a sweet soft bourbon and what I can only describe as homemade butterscotch (not the candy). Though the alcohol is present in the aftertaste, it's not harsh.
Mouthfeel: Light carbonation and smooth.
Overall: This is a complex and well crafted beer. I absolutely love everything about this one and will revisit an aged bottle this time next year.
Serving type: bottle
