Thanks to Schwaeh for this one. Almost got popped at the First Central OH tasting, then again at another get together I believe, before finally reappearing at the 2nd Central OH tasting. Glad I got to partake in some of this.
Pours with a super tall head with excellent retention and lacing. Very thick and black.
Smelled super mellow and sweet. Light bourbon notes and the tang of vanilla. Milk chocolate as well.
Very tasty, lots of complex malt flavors and bitter char.
Smooth and soft like there might be some oats in there.
Overall this is one that lived up to the hype. I'd love to try this again sometime.
