3.05/5 rDev -15.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
A: beautiful dark chestnut color, thick head quickly dissipates. Some sludgy cloudiness halfway though glassful.
S: reminds me of muscat grapes, but not as sweet. Also has a slight banana scent. Overall, a nice aroma. Heavy alcohol on the nose. My husband commented part way through the tasting, " reminds me of aqua net, with the fruity alcohol scent".
T: definitely taste the bourbon! nice coffee notes, dark cherry, roasted malt, slightly nutty, metallic feel on the tongue after swallowing, a mild sweetness that I can't identify.... Maybe grapes? Can taste the alcohol after ingesting, but not overwhelming.
M: nice hearty and heavy feel. Carbonation compliments the heaviness of the brew.
O: my first impression is confused, my palate doesn't really know what to do. The initial swig doesn't taste the best. However, some other flavors do surface like a rich coffee, dark cherry flavor follwed by a roasted malt... I like that part! I think I paid $15 for the bottle, if it were less expensive I might buy it just for variety, but this would otherwise not be something I would buy again. It's not a bad beer, but its not a great beer either. it's certiainly unique, but something just doesn't speak to me. It leaves me wanting... There is no prophetic message here.
