look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pours a flat inky black. Slightly transparent at the edges. Nothing really going on.

Smell - Oxidized. Chocolate. Sharp bright liquor flavor. I know its bourbon, but it smells like brandy. Dark fruit acidity.

Taste - Much more sour. Cherry sourness. Raisins. Oxidation. Oak and chocolate. Sharp alcohol. Red wine finish.

Mouthfeel - Mostly flat. Boozy. Acidic. Tough to drink.

Overall - Complex but not easy to drink. Wonder what it tasted like years ago.

Shared this one at a recent Random Sunday Tasting! Served from bottle into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured pitch black with a minimal off-white head that subsided to none quickly. There was no lacing evident throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, cherry, tart, and wood. The flavor was of sweet malt, cherry, roasted malt, acidic, tart, and subtle dark chocolate. It had a light feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. Out of the two Sinners Blend brews we had this night this one definitely stood out as the best. A nice roastiness was going on here that balanced out really well with the acidic tartness aspects going on. Still needed more carbonation to make it more appealing to the palate though. Definitely worth your time trying this one if you get the opportunity.
