Bottle #505 of 688
I had two bottles of this in two days of crazy beer tasting. This review is from day #2 in comparison with the other DL variants
A - as expected, pours black with a chocolaty head
S - sweet bourbon with lots of fudgy chocolates and a bit of soy
T - sweet vanilla opens this up, and is quickly replaced by fudgy chocolates. Spicy bourbon flavors move in and are cut into by more chocolate flavors. This is really sweet and the bourbon is very well integrated into this.
M - smooth and full like all of the other DL barrel aged varieties
D - nice version of DL...this is my 2nd favorite barrel aged bottle version behind the vanilla bean. The bourbon adds a nice complexity and takes away from some of the cloying sweetness that plagues the regular version of DL.
