What our panel thought

Aroma: “Smoky dark malt, hints of caramel, with some milk su­gar tart­ness.” Fla­vor: “Caramel and choco­late with a re­strained roasted bit­ter fin­ish. The bar­rel adds some nice spice qual­i­ties but is pretty sub­tle over­all. Nice bal­ance on the fin­ish, not overly dry. A mix of caramel, roast, and al­co­hol lingers through the swal­low.” Over­all: “Rich and com­plex, this is a rel­a­tively del­i­cate bal­ance of com­plex fla­vors in a style that is de­fined by ex­tremes. The bar­rel qual­i­ties are maybe a bit sub­tle, but they are well bal­anced and add warmth and com­plex­ity on the fin­ish.”
