“One of our most aggressive and sought-after offerings. Bold bourbon, tobacco and espresso aromas and a hint of American oak greet the nose. Rich, chewy roasted malts, charred oak and bourbon-like vanilla fill the palate and create a seamless finish. A remarkably complex brew that offers a transcendental drinking experience – enjoy with good company.”
Here’s my review from the 2013 vintage last year, this years was so good that I had to up the rating! Drink it fresh, this is amazing.
Final Rating: 4.64/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Appearance – pours a deep brown opaque body with a 2 finger mocha colored head that reduces to a brown ring.
Smell – soft yet pungent whiskey, dark fruits, french vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch, sugar cookie.
Taste – Sweet vanilla and caramel, whiskey upfront. Semisweet chocolate and roasted coffee is next, dark fruits an almost grassy citrus follow through. Nice toasty, burnt malt aftertaste.
Mouthfeel – smooth and silky, medium heavy body.
I really enjoyed this one – lives up to the hype and really impresses. Super complex and balanced, just the right amount of bourbon and a nice roasted flavor. Awesome
