4.83/5 rDev +11%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Been saving this for today. Finished a half marathon and this is a planned treat.
appearance: Mahogany beauty. Dark brown with crimson highlights. Reasonably meaty head for a 12.5%. Nice messy lacing that retreat quickly.
smell: These folks do know barrel aging. Complex with full malt and bourbon. More than a barley but that's the predominant style imo. Vanilla and chocolate.
taste: Gonna plagiarize brentk56 as the description is right on. "layers upon layers of flavor". Bourbon is up front but balanced with lots of chocolate, vanilla. Finish is just wonderful with dark fruits, chocolate, toffee and oh so cohesive. Wow.
mouthfeel: Very well done. Just a tad thin to give a 5.
overall: This is a masterpiece. Wonderful.
Serving type: bottle
