Bottled - Pour is a deep dark brown with a persistent dark tan head. Aroma is lots of roasted malts and syrup. Taste is of burnt wood, not in a completely bad way, but its a very dark roasts beer. You can definitely tell it was aged in wood. Overall it's a nice selection for someone who likes this type of brew but not for me.

Tulip glass; pours deep brown with a tan head. Lacing present on the glass throughout the drink. Aroma of vanilla bean, coffee, chocolate, toffee, and booze. Taste is loads of vanilla, woody malt and more booze. This beer is very good, but I feel like at somewhere between 8-10% instead it couldíve been great.

Nose -- you can really smell the wood, caramel, nuttiness and alcohol. Just a tiny hint of smokiness. Poured super dark and super thick. Didnít think it would be like this. The alcohol is really upfront with the woodiness, caramel, sweet malt and a bit of bitter. Finish is alcohol. Really great and I will pick up more.

Decent beer, but strong, so strong it makes me want do crazy stuff like listen to old ABBA records and dance naked in the kitchen. I think Iíll have another please.

Single bottle to tulip. Dark brown pour with a thin, slightly pinkish head. Vanilla, caramel, bourbon, and wood, and booze in the aroma. Flavor matches - the wood notes are a little much, but the sweetness knocks the woodiness back a little bit when it warms up a bit. Bitter coffee finish and aftertaste. Very creamy/full-bodied mouthfeel.

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
