Brief write-up. The age has made it nice and smooth, that's for sure. Even still, it brings a nice bourbon character, all while retaining rock-solid balance. I seem to get more Misery than Retribution here: the malt character is spicy and wheat-like, but I do pick up subtle chocolate and roast. There's a definite reason this is still on the shelf in my area after ~15 months in the bottle - it's good, but certainly NOT $25 good.

3.42/5: A classic example of a solid beer that's way overpriced

From a large shared bottle of DuClaw Divine Retribution #3

Lightly sweet and slightly hot.
Nice use of bourbon barrel aging.
Excellent lingering aftertaste dominated by flavors and aromas from the barrel aging.
