Dark – very dark.
Aromas of coffee, sweet vanilla & molasses.
Almost nitro smoothness on the palate.
For such a high strength ABV offering this is quite a light experience.
Despite it’s full year in bourbon barrels – I didn’t pick up a noticeable bourbon influence. Truth is – I got more of a rum vibe going.
Those heavy – slightly burnt – molasses combined with rich dark brown demerara sweetness were actually more suited to the Narwhal & pirate ship motif displayed on the eye-catching can!
A ‘beast of a beer’ indeed!
