4.79/5 rDev +7.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Bought 2 bottles from Beers of the World, $ 28.99 each on 1/9/14. Poured into a goblet served between cellar and room temp.
appearance: ebony black with a cappucino head, decent lacing.
aroma: bourbon seems hidden. Smells like malted milk balls, vanilla and honey a little caramel corn and finally some alcohol esters.
taste: molasses leads the way and in a big way followed by coffee and chocolate. Whiskey finally comes out of hiding with an immediate warming sensation
mouthfeel: supple and smooth
overall: expensive but worth it, this is an unbelievably tasty beer. Definitely belongs in the top tier of Bourbon Barrel Aged Stouts. I have another of these celaring and am debating going back to the store to see if any is left.
Serving type: bottle
