Raul liked this. Raul liked this well and good. (Takes another sip...)
‚Äč
Good, but not great by any means...and Raul has no problem saying that. Thang is light like Laura Flynn Boyle and it needs to be barrel aged. Thang feels like that hot cheerleader that is rushed to prom as a Junior: one more year and, baby, you are golden.

Poured into 12oz glass

A- Poured a tar black- head starts at an inch and goes to nothing. No lacing at all.
S- has an oak-like, hardwood smell to it. You get some of that whiskey coming through as well.
T- little hints of coffee and chocolate coming through. Towards middle you get a big punch of the whiskey- you can really tell this is a barrel aged brew. Finishes with a touch of whiskey and then leaves you with bitter dark fruits. Fairly smooth.
M- very silky and thick brew. Good feel to it.

Overall this is a tasty brew. Very high abv and you can tell after the first swig- Drink it slowly and enjoy it.
