4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Delicious beer. Pours jet black viscous with a brown head. Aroma is heavy coffee and vanilla. Taste is decadent brownie batter with a good amount of vanilla and a roasty coffee note with a spicy woody flavor from the wood aging. Just fantastic.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a mocha head. Chocolate malt aromas. Rich and smooth with dark roasted malt bitterness that wrestles with the lactose sweetness. Maple, vanilla, light caramel and chocolate notes. Just a hint of wood. Complex with a very good mouthfeel. Impressive.....

25.4 oz bottle. Pours a beautiful thick and foamy tan head atop ebony. Crazy lacy spots leave a sluggy trail. I’m surprised at how much the maple comes through in the aroma. The vanilla bean also pops with touches of smoke and sandalwood merging into cafe au lait and tootsie rolls. Body is silky, milky with a tang. Taste is coffee bean, vanilla, cocoa powder, wood and green plum.

Bottle. The pour is dark with light head. The aroma is very nice, but can't put my finger on it. The taste has a nice chocolate to it that finishes nice. Very nice beer.
