AdamChandler (4004) – Enfield, New Hampshire, USA – JAN 1, 2016
Bottle picked up last week, split 3 ways at cellar temperature.
A – This is pitch black, 1 finger head with some larger off-white bubbles.
S – Aroma is straight up 100% Whiskey. Sweet, vanilla, coconut and a bit of chocolate.
T – A lot of sweetness up front. Finish is thin. A lot of whiskey i mean you basically taste a lot of whiskey. Chocolate, like dry un-sweetened baker’s chocolate. There is so much flavor here though but a lot of syrup, sugar, chocolate fudge and whiskey. Oaky smoked tannin stave taste does linger
M – Quite thin, with a little creaminess at the middle with the end being a slick oily, velvety mouthfeel.
O – I am not an over the top huge fan of this right now. i LOVE imperial stouts though so of course it is a default 3.5 and then throw in the Whiskey and chocolate and BOOM. I do like this a lot but I bet in a year, some special stuff is gonna happen.
