4.05/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Deep caramel with little mocha head, keeps a spiraling archipelago ok the way down

Ripe banana, dates, almond butter, slight bourbon

bourbon and bitterness coming through, not enough to take away from caramel, almond and cashew, banana bread. Bourbon-balls.

Smooth, somewhat sticky, medium-full body and good bitterness.

All around pretty solid, may seek again if the mood strikes.

16oz can. Poured out a clear brown color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled of chestnuts, roasted malt and bourbon. Sweet maltiness with rich bourbon and a nutty backbone.

3.96/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A 750ml bottle with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Appearance: A dark brown colour with a one finger beige head that dissipated fairly quickly and left sparse to no lacing.

Aroma: Sweet, raisin, caramel, vanilla and oak with a light nut roastiness.

Taste: Quite similar to the aroma as its sweet with raisin, caramel, chocolate, toffee, vanilla, nuts, whiskey and oak with some booze and alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Nice aroma and flavours but perhaps a bit too sweet. This sweetness and the booziness make it a sipper for me, even though it is only 8% ABV.
