Bottle into fancy stout glass. Thick tan head on a hard pour. Black. Aroma of molasses, raisins and wood. Slick full mouthfeel that hides alcohol. Taste similar to aroma, hints of vanilla, some sweetness but also finishes dry w mild hop bitterness. Solid beer.

Very sweet scent, extremely dark and thick color. This was aged for two years by my friend, so it's probably much smoother than a fresh one, but excellent flavor

Pours dark with a bit of foam. Aroma is woody, something interesting going on, library bookshelf? Tastes really rich, full of chocolate, bitter one with not too much cocoa. Booze bites a bit and leaves beautiful long lasting aftertaste.

Very unique. Bottle pours Very dark brown with one finger persistent tan head. Aroma Palo Santo and malts. Taste matches with wood, vanilla, roast malts and other spices I can’t identify which I guess are coming from the Palo Santo. Almost a cinnamon/nutmeg sensation. Creamy palate with woody finish.
